Magnolia Street

Magnolia Street - Capital E's National Theatre for Children

On this street you’ll discover that magnolia trees have hearts, unexpected friendships are the best kind, and 1944 can be just around the corner.

Using multimedia and electronics to blur the line between what’s imagined and what’s real, Australia’s Frank Newman directs with his trademark combination of sharp storytelling and beautifully surprising animation.

Hold your breath — you’re arriving at Magnolia Street.
