Families were out in droves at the world premiere season’s opening night of Dogs in the Schoolyard in QPAC’s Cremorne Theatre on Friday 7 May 2021.

The audience was swept away by this all new production that combines storytelling, circus and original music.    

Dogs in the Schoolyard explores the dynamics of children’s friendships through an engaging tale about dogs and birds. The work offers a conversation starter for families about acceptance of differences, kindness, resilience and relationships.

Performed by children, Dogs in the Schoolyard is especially relatable and aspirational for young audiences.

This sensitive and captivating show is a must-see for people of all ages, but especially recommended for children aged 3 to 8 years.
