Sir Scallywag & The Golden Underpants

Paul Rissmann - Composer & Presenter
Graham Abbott - Conductor
Rachel Bruerville - Vocalist

This family concert is part of our 2018 Festival of Learning


The bravest Knight in the kingdom, a mere 6-year-old, must rescue the King’s underpants, which amazingly, are made of gold! When Sir Scallywag goes up against a wicked giant, set to steal the King’s source of power, he must find a way to defeat the bigger warrior and return within the hour!


Come on an adventure with Paul Rissmann and the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra who, with music and images, will show you that being small never stopped anybody from being courageous and clever! Based on the book, Sir Scallywag and the Golden Underpants by Giles Andreae and Korky Paul; internationally acclaimed composer and educator Paul Rissmann will guide families in an interactive story telling experience.


Back by popular demand following its Adelaide debut at the 2017 DreamBIG Children’s Festival.


Add to the fun by dressing up as your favourite medieval character - think knights, kings, queens, princes, princesses, giants and of course - golden underpants!
