  • Spare Parts Puppet Theatre 1 Short St Fremantle, WA, 6160 Australia (map)

Adapted by Peta Murray from the book by Tim Winton.

Spare Parts Puppet Theatre’s Blueback is a visually stunning exploration of the watery world in a place not dissimilar to many of our beautiful WA coastal towns.

Through the eyes of Abel, a young boy that forms a friendship with a majestic blue groper, we are touched by timeless themes of family, growing up, belonging, and the specialness of the place we live.

Blueback will nourish your heart and the beautiful Tim Winton poetry will resonate with you long after you leave the theatre.

This award winning production is an underwater menagerie of exquisite puppetry and an extraordinary celebration of the Western Australian coastline from one of WA’s most beloved authors.



WHEN: July 4-18, performances 10am & 1pm (special evening performances 8 & 17 July)
