I've had an annual subscription for many years and most of the plays are outstanding. Even if there have been a few over the years which weren't to my liking, the acting at every play has been superb. The most recent play I saw, Lip...More

Wonderful production The recent production of Akroyd's "Relatively speaking "showcases great Australian acting talent. Hilarious. Where the Sydney theatre company can be about pomp and arrogance, the Ensemble brings acting in to the suburbs with great skill. For anyone a wonderful experience.

I think your family is a little young for the Ensemble. I would recommend Aladdin the musical and check the Opera House for special shows, especially since it is the holidays.
