Brought to you by Monkey Baa Theatre Company
Carrying an uplifting message of friendship is The Bockety World of Henry and Bucket, coming to Sydney in the September school holidays. The adorable and heart-warming silliness in this children’s play will particularly appeal to 4-8 year olds.
Negotiating a path through the social complexities of pre-school and school can result in many a tear along the way. Through Henry and Bucket’s relationship young theatre-goers and their families can explore what a friendship is, what happens if it goes wrong, and how to fix it.
Henry and Bucket are the best of pals, although sometimes you wouldn’t think so! Like all good friends they have their ups and their downs, their battles and their resolutions. They share their adventures, but sometimes they need their own space. But as long as these two friends are together, they can transform their rusty, dusty, battered and bockety world into a place of wonder and excitement.
Monkey Baa has been creating inspiring, award-winning theatre for young audiences since 1997. The common thread running through all work is that young people’s interests are valued and respected.
At their custom-designed, fully accessible Lendlease Darling Quarter Theatre, Monkey Baa has created a truly kid-friendly and vibrant environment, where children can wriggle, shout to the characters and laugh out loud.

A day out in Darling Quarter
Make a day of it by combining some fun, bockety entertainment, great food, lots of playtime and a special treat. All within a few steps of the theatre.
With performances on at 10.30am and 12.30pm, head into town and let the kids blow off some steam at the immense Darling Quarter Children’s Playground outside the theatre first.
After the show, grab some sushi at Umi Sushi & Udon a couple of doors along from the theatre.
Then let them loose on the water play section of the playground. Bringing a change of clothes might be a good idea!
Before heading homeward, slurp up an ice cream at Gelatissimo.
