Prepare for a celebration of friendship, love and the power of imagination when The Midnight Gang comes to Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre this month.

Based on the best-selling children’s novel by David Walliams, the Maryam Master play is about making dreams come true with a bit of magic.

Staying away from his family at St Crook’s Hospital, 12-year-old Tom finds himself lonely, lost and feeling like he will never leave.

But his fellow young patients in the children’s ward have other ideas.

They might feel trapped and be stuck in hospital, but there are no limits to where their imaginations can take them as the Midnight Gang.

Each night when the clock strikes midnight and most children are fast asleep, the journey begins for the Midnight Gang as they go on a series of amazing journeys and turn the hospital into the places they have always wanted to go.

Watch the heart-warming characters and witty humour come to life as Tom and his friends embark on their amazing adventures on stage on June 23.
