You will find yourself smiling that there is still good in the world, and that the crew… have made it their mission to make sure everyone is included & accepted for who they are.”

Based on the book by Karen Lee Roberts, Wilbur the Optical Whale is a ‘tail’ about friendship, acceptance, and celebrating difference. Wilbur and Cecil are the best of friends and one day while playing hide and seaweed, they are set upon by the Starfish Meanie Gang! How do they get out of this one?

Wilbur the Optical Whale is an immersive, interactive and accessible performance for children aged 3+. It is set in an exquisitely crafted underwater world full of fun, interactive play, stunning circus tricks, digital and visual imagery, and music. All performances are Auslan interpreted, and are presented as ‘relaxed’.

Wilbur the Optical Whale has since won the Matilda Award for Best Independent Production 2020-21, the 2020 Adelaide Fringe Access Award, and a 2020 weekly John Chataway Innovation Award.
