"Christmas Dreaming" 


 A brand new production premiering at the National Gallery of Australia.

Two of the Canberra regions' most innovative and original production teams join forces in this collaboration, commissioned by the National Gallery of Autralia for their popular annual Children's Christmas party.
A group of Canberra school children are on an excursion to the Warrumbungles, when their bus breaks down. While they are waiting for help, they encounter a number of Indigenous Australians who teach the children about Indigenous culture and beliefs, as well as different ways of celebrating Christmas. 
Featuring the trademark humour and production skills associated with Ickle Pickle Productions. Combined with the vibrant dance and traditional song of Duncan Smith and Wiradjuri Echo's, this is an imaginative and entertaining show suitable for all ages.




Saturday 15th December, 11am

James O Fairfax Theatre, National Gallery of Australia.
