CDP Kids presents
A play by Maryam Master
Based on the best-selling novel by David Walliams

“…shenanigans that deliver a positive message, Billionaire Boy reaches both funny bones and hearts.” Artsplorers

After a sell-out season in 2018, David Walliams’ best-selling book returns to Riverside’s stage in the original Australian adaptation from the team behind Mr Stink and The 13, 26, 52 and 78-Storey Treehouses. Featuring spectacular musical numbers and lots of laughs, this highly entertaining production will make you feel like you have won the lottery!

Twelve-year-old Joe has everything a boy could ever want, from a golden underwater Ferrari to his very own cinema. Together, he 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.

FYI this production contains smoke haze.

Suitable for: Ages 6 – 12 years old and their families
