Parramatta Riverside Theatres’ Spot On Children’s Festival

RIVERSIDE-logoSpecial offers for single Dads and their families for Parramatta Riverside Theatres’ Spot On Children’s Festival in the September/October School holidays.

Our team understands that school holidays can be expensive and live theatre can often be out of reach for many single parent families. However, we strongly believe that high quality theatre and arts experiences should be available to all children and families. We’d like parents to know that they and their children are welcome at Riverside. In recognition of this we are offering some significant discounts for single parent families to a number of the shows in Spot On.

Each September school holidays Riverside is transformed by children, their adults and artists into a festive place celebrating imagination and childhood during our Spot On Children’s Festival. This year we have chosen shows, activities and films that really embrace children’s love of singing, dancing, laughter and make-believe.

Spot On includes both free activities and ticketed events for kids of all ages.

This year we even have a retro film festival- allowing parents to share their favourite childhood films with their kids on the big screen. We also offer relaxed performances for children with specific needs. Full program information can be found on our website: Riverside Theatres and Spot On Children’s Festival
