The AUC (Actors Unemployed Company) returns to the Rhumbelow Theatre these Easter holidays with a brand new show for the whole family.

Titled Penelope Pixie’s Birthday Adventure, it features Marc Kay, Sarah Richard and Rowan Bartlett. Directed by Bryan Hiles and with original music written by Dale Scheepers, it offers fun for the whole family – filled with song, dance, comedy, action and excitement.

It’s Penelope Pixie’s birthday… and she wants to go on an adventure! Along with her best friend, Gary the Goblin, who knows what she’ll encounter when she travels up Magic Mountain? Especially once they meet Barry Boulderfist!
