March COVID-19 Update: the safety of our patrons and teams is paramount and with infection cases expected to rise, we have taken the very difficult decision with a heavy heart to cancel our upcoming season of The Ferocious Animals Petting Zoo. This decision has not been made lightly, with many factors leading to it, including difficulties around travel. All ticketholders are being contacted with information around how they can exchange their tickets or receive a credit. You can read more about this decision and our other COVID-19 changes here.

From Fighting Worms to Bloodsucker Bats, the animals of The Ferocious Animals Petting Zoo are adorable – and deadly! Professor Crouton travels the world trying to catch them all for his new zoo, but he must be doing something wrong because they won’t stop biting him!

Full of hilarious puppetry, this is the story of how The Court Jesters’ cutest birthday party show captured and tamed all those super dangerous imaginary animals.

The Court is proud to present family-friendly entertainment during the school holidays. The Ferocious Animals Petting Zoo is recommended for children aged 5-8 and all tickets are just $10 for children and adults.

    Relaxed performances are special shows for those with sensory needs. Lighting and sound are adjusted, capacity is reduced to allow for freer movement and there is a “chill-out” area in the foyer.

    There will be a relaxed performance of The Ferocious Animals Petting Zoo on Wednesday 22 April at 3pm.
