Adelaide and South Australia's premier Arts & Entertainment coverage

Immersive and whimsical pre-school theatre show takes to the stage for 2024 Adelaide Fringe 

Vintage Vendetta Productions is bringing its magical pre-school theatre show Meg in the Magic Toyshop to The Warehouse Theatre over three weekends from March 1 – 17.  

Written specifically for pre-schoolers aged 3-6, this family friendly theatre show features an all- South Australian cast; Merrilyn Greer as the toyshop doll ‘Meg’, Leah Gauthier, and new Adelaide up-and-comer Mia Ferraretto, in the role of ‘Penny’ the toy soldier. 

Meg has lost a glove and enlists the help of the toys and enthusiastic audience helpers in a chaotic hunt around the toyshop unlocking enchanted toy boxes and revealing their hidden surprises all to find the missing glove before the Toyshop opens. Using immersive stories, dances and timeless children’s songs, this show combines the warm, cosy feeling of childhood days gone by with whimsical fun for today – its fabulous entertainment for children and adults alike.
