Theatre Royal and Terrapin are pleased to offer a relaxed performance of Scaredy Cat on Sunday 9 October 2022 at 2:00pm. For more information please read below and to book CLICK HERE.

Terrapin recently celebrated their 40th birthday and have been responsible for introducing hundreds of thousands of young Tasmanians to the magic of theatre. Their work is increasingly in demand around the world and this school holiday production comes on the back of a season at Sydney Opera House.

Scaredy Cat comes from a long line of fierce hunters, hired for the biggest jobs, with the meanest rodents. When an urgent call comes in, it’s Scaredy’s turn to do the family proud. Only problem is, she’s terrified of mice.

Trapped in an old basement with three cunning critters, Scaredy is bullied and all alone – or so she thinks. As the antique furniture in the basement comes creakily to life, a whole new world of eccentric characters is revealed, leading Scaredy on a journey she’ll never forget.

From its island home in Tasmania, Terrapin creates worlds of creative adventure beyond the borders of contemporary puppetry. The company’s in-theatre productions transport children and families to incredible places with narratives of adventure, humour and beauty. Terrapin’s interactive installations use simple technologies in dazzling ways to make audiences of all ages essential creators in transforming public space.

Terrapin is assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body, and through Arts Tasmania by the Minister for the Arts.
Theatre Royal says
What is a Relaxed Performance?
In our Relaxed Performances we focus on relaxing or adapting the theatre environment while maintaining the creative integrity of the show.
In a Relaxed Performance:
• We may make minor changes to sensory elements of a show such as reducing bright lighting or loud noises.
• There is a relaxed attitude to noise and movement.
• You are welcome to bring in, and use, stimming devices.
• The theatre doors remain open; and the house lights remain on, but dimmed, throughout the performance.
• You can leave the venue at any time and a designated quiet area is available.
• Take a virtual tour of our venues to help prepare for your visit. Theatre Royal | Virtual tour by Sky Avenue Photography & Design
