Reserves and Prices

From the creative mind of children’s author David Walliams (The World’s Worst Children, Gangsta Granny), Ratburger is coming to life in hilarious new play!

Things are not looking good for Zoe. Her stepmother Sheila is so lazy she gets Zoe to pick her nose for her. The school bully Tina Trump makes her life a misery – mainly by spitting on her head. And now the evil Burt from Burt’s Burgers is after her pet rat!

And guess what he wants to do with it? The clue is in the title…

From the team behind the Australian tours of Dog Man the Musical and The 78-Storey Treehouse, David Walliams’ screamingly funny number one bestselling book comes to life with visually stunning sets, charming puppetry and striking projection.
