Alphabetical Sydney

Critical Stages Touring

Book & Lyrics by Hilary Bell. Music by Greta Gertler Gold

Created by Antonia Pesenti and Hilary Bell

Inspired by Hilary Bell and Antonia Pesenti’s best-selling picture book, this immersive musical will take audiences of all ages on a journey around the world’s most famous harbour city.

Our guides, the chaotic Ibis and order-loving Nanna, take us on a whirlwind adventure. Climb aboard the tour bus to discover their Sydney, one letter at a time.

Combining puppetry, theatre, songs and creative play with irresistible music by Greta Gertler Gold, Alphabetical Sydney: All Aboard! is a celebration of all that makes this city unique.

This event is part of Chatswood Culture Bites 2023, Willoughby City Council’s innovative program of music, theatre, comedy and more in Chatswood CBD.
