Description

It's a sticky situation. Queen Bee and Worker Bee need to work together to rebuild their hive, but things never quite go to plan... A Bee Story is a uniquely Australian physical theatre show for children and families incorporating a kaleidoscope of circus, acrobatics, dance and live music. It tells the story of Queen Bee and Worker Bee who must work together to rebuild their hive after being destroyed by a bushfire. Join the bees on their buzzy adventures and be enchanted by their pollen-collecting skills, honey-making abilities, and super-bee strength. A Bee Story has themes of environmentalism.

Five stars! This show is unbridled joy. It’s great for kids and adults alike with really talented performers. I was really disappointed when it ended - can’t wait for Bee Story 2!

This was the perfect entertainment for my 4 year old - very funny, lovely set and plenty of "oooh that's impressive" moments.

This charming, funny, yet hard hitting performance tells the story of a Queen Bee and her Worker Bee as they try to find a new home and re-build their hive through the medium of circus and physical theatre.

You will be whisked away on a mesmerizing journey with these two lovable performers as they engage the audience and I promise you, you’ll never listen to Rimsky Korsakov’s “Flight of the Bumble Bee” the same way again. Definitely a highlight of the fringe and one to watch!
