Shows

Roll up, roll up! It’s almost time for the show!

We make original children's shows for young people and families, bringing stories and a sprinkling of magic to where you live.

In fact, most of our shows are made with young people themselves. We love to play and share ideas, letting our young friends lead the way.

What should you expect from a Daryl & Co production? Something fun that you can relate to. There will be a lot of heart, probably a bit of cheekiness and a whole heap of imagination. We like to tell stories about the world that help us all understand ourselves, and each other, a little better.

We love children's theatre and that our young audiences tell us (loudly) if they think something is boring. That keeps us on our toes! We work to make our shows as enjoyable, silly, thought-provoking, kind, unexpected and interesting as possible.

Have a browse through our productions and see what you think.
