Co-written and co-created by Adam Kelly and James Berlyn, this charming WA Youth Theatre Company production has been developed for children aged 7 years and over and their families, with invaluable dramaturgy from Alex Desebrock.
Supercharged by the exciting animations of fellow Perth-based neurodiverse artist Ben Hollingsworth, ARCO Junior introduces lovable protagonist Finbar the fish, fire-breathing Morguthul and others, to assist with storytelling. In his solo performance, Adam uses the characters to paint a picture of the different parts of himself, and to share the message that we’re acceptable in our entirety, just the way we are.
Whilst exploring sensitive themes of difference and rejection, the show holds to a sense of wonder and delight throughout and ultimately instils positivity, finishing on a note of brilliant optimism. ARCO Junior is an illuminating and joyful journey for the whole family.
Join us as Adam and Finbar dance, draw, fly and joke their way into our hearts.
