Storm Boy

A heart-warming tale about an unusual friendship.

The classic Australian novel Storm Boy will be brought to life at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) from 29 July to 17 August.

The production tells the story of a young boy – Mike – who lives on coast of South Australia with his father, Hideaway Tom.

Over summer, Mike – Storm Boy – becomes friends with an Aboriginal man named Fingerbone Bill and rescues an orphaned pelican, which he names Mr Percival.

The pair help Storm Boy on his journey from child to adult and teach him lessons about love and loss.

The new production of Colin Thiele’s iconic story is directed by Sam Strong, who was responsible for the stage show adaptations of Jasper Jones and The Wider Earth.

The cast includes John Batchelor, Tony Briggs, Emily Burton and features puppet designs by David Morton.

Guests with disabilities can enjoy a relaxed performance on Saturday 10 August at 2pm. The relaxed performance is particularly suitable for audience members on the autism spectrum or who have sensory communication or learning disabilities.
