Presented by CDP ·

David Walliams’ third novel for young audiences Billionaire Boy is a number one UK bestseller. In 2019,  CDP Theatre Producers (the team behind The 13-, 26-, 52-, 78- and 91-Storey Treehouses, The Gruffalo and David Walliams’ Mr Stink) are proud to bring the beloved novel to life on stage! Coming to the State Theatre Centre of Western Australia this April, it’s perfect for children aged 6-12 – and their adults!

Since 2008 David Walliams has taken the children’s literary world by storm; his bestselling novels have been translated into over forty languages and have sold over ten million copies in the UK alone. Walliams’ books have achieved unprecedented critical acclaim and countless broadsheet reviewers have compared him to his all-time hero, Roald Dahl.

Twelve year old Joe has everything a boy could ever want, from a golden underwater Ferrari to his very own cinema. Joe and his Dad have more money than you could imagine, but what Joe really needs is a friend.  When Joe arrives at his new school, life really gets tough. Facing the school bully, his Dad’s new girlfriend and the world’s worst school canteen, Joe is about to learn that money might buy you a lot in Raj’s shop, but it can’t buy you everything.

Don’t miss this original Australian adaptation with songs, laughs and yes, that cat sick and sweet potato mash from the canteen…

A talented cast of five bring the Billionaire Boy to the stage, exploring important social issues such as bullying, relationships and self-esteem through enjoyable, accessible comedy and loveable characters and lots of laughs.

“Billionaire Boy is a poignant tale about a boy who has everything. Everything except a friend. It’s a riches to rags story that will warm your heart. Filled with humour and soul, this is not a show you want to miss!” – Maryam Master (Playwright)
