The Melbourne premiere of the children’s classic Emil and the Detectives will captivate audiences both young and old, when the critically acclaimed Adelaide-based theatre company Slingsby comes to the Alexander Theatre for two performances on Saturday 8 September.
This delightful, beautifully written and optimistic kid’s own adventure story is a journey of discovery and self-discovery, exploring the value of friendships and learning about trust and taking risks.
Penned in 1929, Erich Kastner’s classic detective novel for children has been transformed into a pacy, gorgeously designed and brilliantly inventive performance.
Our young hero Emil is heading from a rural home to visit family in the big city when something valuable is stolen. She soon meets Gustav and his wily band of child sleuths and they all take on the crowded, cosmopolitan streets of the city in a spirited pursuit of justice. Can a bunch of kids work together to uncover and outsmart the true criminal?
Internationally renowned for its detailed stagecraft, humour and awe inspiring theatrical magic, Slingsby reinvents this classic children’s story with contemporary verve and ingenuity.
