2010 School Holiday Activity - Charlie and Lola Live at Sydney Opera House

Share Article

These school holidays, everyone’s favourite brother and sister Charlie and Lola, bring their kids theatre show to Sydney Opera House. Charlie and Lola’s Best Bestest Play is based on the popular books by Lauren Child and adapted from some of the funniest episodes of the hit series, seen in Australia on ABC TV and CBeebies. These adorable and hilarious characters will be brought to life by a delightful mix of puppet show and music.

“I thoroughly enjoyed the creative yet faithful translation of the books for the stage. More importantly, so did my three year old” – Time Out London

Sydney Opera House is thrilled to be presenting the lovable Charlie and his cheeky sister Lola on stage for the 2010 School Holidays. Charlie and Lola’s Best Bestest Play has been touring non-stop in the UK and Ireland, playing to packed houses in the theatres across the country from the Edinburgh Fringe to the Oxford Playhouse and the Belfast Children’s Festival.

I have this little sister Lola. She is small and very funny…

In this kids theatre production we find out if Lola will ever tidy her room or if Charlie will get Lola to sleep, even though she is not sleepy and will not go to bed. The Tigers want their bedtime milk, the Dancing Dogs have borrowed Lola’s pyjamas – not to mention the Ogre hiding in the wardrobe! Who would have known there were so many things to overcome before the day’s end?

“An ideal early theatre experience” – The Guardian

With delightfully witty dialogue, a gorgeous set, skilful puppetry and of course the lovable characters, the Charlie and Lola children's theatre production is just as enjoyable for adults as it is for tiny fans - the perfect Christmas gift, a wonderful introduction to theatre and a perfect day out when looking for kids activities these school holidays.

Charlie and Lola’s Bestest Best Play is presented by Sydney Opera House and Watershed Productions by arrangement with BBC Worldwide and Tiger Aspect Productions.
