JUST LIVE! Children’s theatre production

Red Line Productions are creating a children’s theatre show based on the Andy Griffiths JUST book series, illustrated by Terry Denton.

This production will tour nationally in 2020.

Days Left

We are raising funds to help make this production possible. We are creating a play with the age range of 9-14 year olds, plus their parents, families and teachers. With your help, we will tour this production all over Australia to theatres everywhere to bring this production of JUST LIVE! to audiences and cites near you.

Andy Griffiths is one of the most popular children’s authors in Australia. He has written over 30 books, including nonsense verse, short stories, comic novels and plays. His books have been New York Times bestsellers, won more than 80 children’s choice awards, been adapted as a television cartoon series and sold more than twelve million copies worldwide. He is best known as the author of the JUST! series, The Day My Bum Went Psycho and, in recent years, the bestselling Treehouse series.

Robin Goldsworthy will be adapting this book series for stage.
With everything from invisibility pills and Mudmen, to vomiting dogs and death defying balloon rides.

This project is important because we are bringing the well known and loved stories from the ever popular kids book series, the JUST! series, to our stages for all to love and enjoy.

We are creating this work with the ages 9-14 year olds in mind. We feel there is a lack of shows for this age group and we can not wait to introduce this production to children all over Australia.

All donations will be going towards this production to realise this show and bring it to life. We need your help to make this show possible.

Audiences all over Australia will love to see JUST LIVE! and we would love to bring this show to them.

Red Line Productions kicked into life in late 2014 to resurrect the much-loved Old Fitzroy Theatre in Woolloomooloo. Since taking up their residency, the venue has been transformed into a robust centre for excellence and independent sector generation through Red Line’s curated programming and late night development frames for new writing and emerging practitioner showcasing. Now widely acknowledged as Sydney’s home of indie theatre, the company was nominated for 22 Sydney Theatre Awards in 2015.

Founded on an ethos of backing the next generation of artists and audience, Red Line delivers positive leadership in the growth and vitality of the independent sector. The work of Red Line is absolutely necessary, ensuring that Australia’s independent creative ecology remains distinct and resilient.

The intensely intimate nature of the venue allows for fearless programming and production; the venue is positioned as a hub to connect audiences, artists and supporters. Red Line contributes to building strong artistic and creative capital, embracing and developing the audience of the future.
