From plays for kids to absurdist theatre, Ipswich theatre has plenty to offer in June and July.

Are We There Yet by CDP kids
A play by Finegan Kruckemeyer

Monday 05th June 2023 at 18:00 – 19:00

“The year I turned eight, Mum and Dad took us on a trip around Australia. Luke, Billy and I missed school for the whole winter term.”

Join 8-year-old Grace and her family on their adventurous and often funny expedition around Australia!

Following CDP’s successful national tour of Magic Beach, Alison Lester AM’s classic book comes to life on stage, with songs, fun, (and quokkas!) for children aged 3-10 and their adults.

From the team behind The Gruffalo and the 13-, 26-, 52-, 78- and 91-Storey Treehouses, this new adaptation from multi-award winning playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer is a celebration of family, love, and the diversity and beauty of Australia.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.

Ipswich Civic Centre presents the Ipswich Seniors Concert Group as they present their 2023 production Three Wakes and a Wedding.

This Is Absurd!

Friday 23 June to Sunday 2 July 2023

Presented by Arts Alive Ipswich and Ipswich Civic Centre

This is Absurd! is an innovative and thought-provoking production from Crossfyre Players. Four short plays, in the absurdist style, delve into the complexity of relationships and modern life.
Eight actors take on a challenging variety of roles which will make you laugh, make you think and ultimately will entertain you.

One of the plays, Impromptu, by Tad Mosel, is performed by arrangement with Music Theatre International Australasia Pty Ltd, on behalf of Dramatists Play Service, Inc. The other three plays have been devised by Director Suzanne Matulich.
