Balloonacy
Nothing can go right for the character of the old man, whose days are gray and dreary until he is visited by a friendly red balloon. Reminiscent of the silent films of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, the playwright has imagined the man as an older version of the boy in the movie The Red Balloon, now grown up and grown old, having forgotten his youthful adventure. That is until the red balloon returns to the rescue! This show features a latex balloon, and will feature a post-show free play involving latex free balloons.  Please let our stage manager know of any latex allergies in your group upon arrival in the theatre.

MONA members may buy tickets to this performance for $8 each (normally $12+fees) through the link below.

This is a MONA-only event. 
$31 per adult & child couple (normally $45 for a two-instructor class).
$12 per additional guest (adult or child - normally $20 for a two-instructor class).
As a young girl, Lady Sadie recalls asking her father for help making a ponytail before school. Her mother, already at work, could be of no assistance and her father, feeling panicked, made a feeble attempt at this basic up-do, resulting in a disappointed little Sadie.
Years later, Lady Sadie went on to become a hair stylist, with a passion for empowering parents to spend a little extra care each morning for children to feel comfortable and confident with their hair.
Join us for an evening of tea treats and tutorials! Parents and children will master styles  to do on their own and those pesky up-dos requiring a partner.
Please bring your own brush and elastics for securing styles.
