In January of every year, Encore stages a children’s show to celebrate school holidays.

Our children’s shows are family friendly and have big casts, fabulous costumes, much-loved popular characters, and are loads of fun!

You might even see some familiar faces there, as many of our actors are regulars and appear in every children’s show.

Our audience members come along every year with children, parents and grandparents loving the shows.
With tickets only $10, our children’s show is affordable for the whole family, and a great way to enjoy a special day out with the kids.
