Adelaide Premiere | Australia | Interactive Performance
By Audioplay

Leo and Abbie aren’t ordinary kids, they’re Turners – a secret species that morphs from human to animal – and now they’ve found themselves at the centre of a global plot to annihilate their kind... You are the hero in this immersive narrative adventure based on Mick Elliott’s hilarious book series The Turners.

Audioplay is the brand-new audio experience that lets kids step into the story and be the characters that they love, complete with a blockbuster soundtrack. With your headphones on, you play the characters in this action-packed journey. But be warned – being a Turner is hectic. One minute you’re hanging with your sister, the next you’ve been taken hostage by half-snake, half-human creatures. Things are getting wild!

The Experience 
Experience is 2 hours in total. Groups of 8 children at a time will enter the Audioplay play space, while remaining groups will be invited to view the State Library’s Mortlock Chamber and play with historic board games from the collection.

This show was off the charts! Cass, Age 9 See Saw Mag
