Heart-warming, visual spectacular 

Ruby is seven and three quarters.  She is everything a little girl should be: brazen, hopeful and bright-eyed. But unlike other little girls, Ruby is sick and spends most of her time in hospital.

Through an unlikely friendship with a tongue tied clown doctor called Dr Audio-Yo!, Ruby’s hospital room is transformed into a wonderland of mop monsters and bed caves, where anything can happen and wishes really do come true!

Ruby’s Wish combines beautiful puppets, sensational clowning, original music and a magical beat boxing costume, into a heart-warming, visual spectacular that will enchant students and teachers alike. 

Presented by Sydney Opera House, MAKEbeLIVE Productions and Cubbyhouse Co.
