The Lost Letter Office

The Lost Letter Office by Jen McArthur and Renata Hopkins

A young girl Nixie has just moved into the neighbourhood and a retired magician NahNah is back from her world travels. Each alone in their homes, with a longing to write and connect with someone – their letters go on an adventurous journey, making their way to The Lost Letter Office. Can the Lost Letter bumbling sleuths help the letters on their way? Or will their letters be enveloped in their snail-mail chaos forever? 

The Lost Letter Office is a love letter to handwritten letters. Using magic, movement, music and clown performance, it explores how these paper creations can deliver powerful gifts of love.

Cost – $9 per person. One adult free with every 10 paying students.

Relaxed Performance: A Relaxed Performance is designed for those who may find a traditional theatre experience overwhelming. The lights will not be dimmed so much, the sound will not be so loud. There will also be a chill out zone outside the theatre and a social script will be provided well in advance to familiarise your students with the venue and plot lines. 
Please note: Due to COVID-19 there will not be any relaxed performances for The Lost Letter Office.

Terms and Conditions can be found here.
