Dandenong’s iconic Drum Theatre is ready to welcome audiences for two book-inspired, family friendly shows during the April 2021 school holidays.

The Midnight Gang brings to life British comedian David Walliams’ bestselling book. A story of friendship, love and the power of the imagination, this show is perfect for children aged 6+ and their families. There will be three shows, on Wednesday 7 April at 6pm, or Thursday 8 April, at 10am and 12pm.

Australian favourite The 91-Storey Treehouse joins Andy and Terry as their treehouse reaches amazing new heights. It’s now more fantastically dangerous than ever, with a deserted desert island, a whirlpool and a giant spider. A wild adventure for children aged 6-12 and their adults. Join the fun on Thursday 15 April at 6pm, or on Friday 16 April at 11am. Both shows are presented by CDP Kids Productions.
