Have you ever, ever felt like this?

The home-grown TV show that raised a generation is back with all the magic you remember (and that song you can’t forget!) in a brand-new Australian musical by Paul Hodge based on the seminal series of much-loved children’s book author Paul Jennings.

In an old lighthouse, single dad Tony Twist and his kids Pete, Linda and Bronson are about to embark on a magical adventure to protect their home from the greedy Gribble family who want to turn their piece of paradise into an Aqua-World-Casino-Pizza-Palour-Burger-Joint-Adventure-Park.

With the help of a haunted outhouse, a crystal ball, some friendly ghosts and smelly feet (up the pong!), this family might just have what it takes to save the day!

Whether you’re new to The Twists or a die-hard fan (withoutmypants), this big-hearted musical filled with soaring song and jaw-dropping design is for everyone.

Captained by Director Simon Phillips (Muriel’s Wedding: The Musical, Ladies in Black), Round The Twist The Musical is a quintessentially Australian joyous celebration of oddballs and misfits – where if you stand out then you’ll fit right in!

Presented by Queensland Theatre and QPAC
