Coming to the Arts Centre Gold Coast for two shows only is the story of a little girl's journey to conquer her fear of swimming in the ocean.
Presented by Spare Parts Puppet Theatre and based on the classic children's book book by Tim Winton combines beach culture comedy and enchanting puppetry to create an exciting live theatre performance.
Set in a typical Winton world of beach and sea, The Deep is about a little girl named Alice who must overcome her fear of swimming in the ocean.
Every day Alice and her family go down to the jetty for a swim and every day Alice watches from the rail.
Despite all the encouragement in the world from her belly-flopping mum and dad and bombie obsessed brother, Alice is too scared to swim where the ocean turns from green to blue.
Until one day an out-of-the-blue swim with a friendly dolphin when Alice forgets to be scared and just swims!
