Curiosity! Choice! Wonder!  - What's inside the Wonderbox?

Sensorium Theatre - Australia’s leading theatre company making work specifically designed for young audiences with disability and their friends – invites children to roll the dice and set out along a safe, exhilarating pathway into the unknown.

Inside a giant puzzle-box of illusions, kooky-carnival friends with magic in their pockets lead audiences into an immersive multi-sensory wonderland of fantastical large-scale projections, strange tiny delights, and infectious live music. EVERY child’s curiosity is celebrated and rewarded with wondrous surprises. As boxes reveal boxes within boxes each child is given the opportunity to find a magical version of themselves. Inside the Wonderbox, micro moments of whole worlds in a matchbox lead into macro universes where EVERYONE, their face reflected in the stars of the Milky Way, is invited to be wonderful!

Due to the format of the show, only participating young people are required to purchase a ticket.
Each young person may bring 1 carer free of charge.

“I am so extremely grateful that my child had this opportunity. I have already highly recommended to others.  It was a very special experience I will remember for a long time.”

Show Warning & Booking Information
Wonderbox is a multi-sensory immersive theatre performance created with and for children and young people with disability, and their family and friends. All performances of Wonderbox are relaxed performances, with audiences invited to sit or move around freely within the performance space and adjacent chill-out zone, which features comfortable seating and minimal sound. The performers use multi-modal communication including key signs, natural gesture, visual symbols and minimal verbal language. The show is highly visual with a rich aural environment and many opportunities for individual engagement and interaction through the senses. Wonderbox is an inclusive show and Sensorium will adapt the work to the audience, as such we have included a short questionnaire on each ticket so each child's specific requirements can be met.


Additional Information
Enhance your child’s experience by using Wonderbox’s online preparatory materials available here.  These resources familiarise children with the story characters, songs and storytelling methods, resulting in a more enjoyable show experience.


Age Recommendation
Inclusive performances for children with disabilities and their families (recommended for 8yrs+)


Audience Size
Limited to 15 children (and their carers)
