The Young King is charming, majestic and utterly delightful Limelight
What kind of King would you be? A naïve boy raised by goatherds is discovered to be heir to the kingdom. Treasures and privileges are laid at his feet, but at what cost to others? The achingly beautiful and tender language of Oscar Wilde joins the intimate and magical world of internationally acclaimed Adelaide theatre company, Slingsby, who enthralled Dublin audiences with The Tragical Life of Cheeseboy in the 2014 Theatre for Children season.
Journey in wonder, to a land of challenging choices and rich rewards.

Ages 8+
