Alison Lester’s much-loved picture book Are We There Yet? will come to life on stage at Frankston Arts Centre in the April school holidays. From the team behind Magic Beach, The Gruffalo and The 13-, 26-, 52-, 78- & 91-Storey Treehouses, this new adaptation from multi-award-winning playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer is a celebration of family, love, and the diversity and beauty of Australia.

Are We There Yet? is based on an actual road trip that Alison went on with her family, and is the second of her classic picture books to be adapted for the stage. This beloved story will be brought to life with songs, laughs and quokkas in a show that the entire family will enjoy.

Producer Suzie Franke, of CDP Theatre Producers, said: “Many of us will remember long family road trips, hours in the backseat with our siblings asking our parents ‘Are we there yet?’ This beautiful production will take you on a journey around this amazing country that will linger in your imagination long after the adventure is over. We can’t wait to share all the fun, excitement, and amazing sights with audiences across Australia.

Are We There Yet? will be performed at Frankston Arts Centre on Thursday, April 13, at noon. Tickets are available here or call Box Office at 9784 1060.
