Fancy Long Legs





Underneath a crafter’s cart lived a lively young arachnid. Fancy Long Legs was her name, and she was easily distracted.
Fancy Long Legs is a brand-new glittery and vibrant musical adventure for children, based on a new picture book by Brisbane’s international tinsel and craft icon, Rachel Burke.
Fancy Long Legs is the story of Fancy, a spider who loves to create but struggles to stay focused on her creative task of web-building. With the support of her friends, Fancy goes on a beautiful journey of self-discovery to find her own style and make something no one else can.
This uplifting story takes a sparkly and relatable look at neurodivergence, offering a playful and glitter-covered adventure of acceptance, staying true to yourself and finding friends who love you and celebrate your differences.
The Little Red Company, La Boite Theatre and Brisbane Festival join forces this September bringing this bright and bold family work to life, gifting sparkle, inclusivity and catchy tunes to our youngest theatregoers.
Fancy Long Legs has been created with accessibility at its core to ensure the theatre experience is welcoming, safe and inclusive for all. Each performance in the season will be considered ‘relaxed’ with flexible venue access, ambient lighting, spoiler sheets, sensory warnings, a low-sensory space, accessible seating, plus Auslan Interpretation, Audio Description and Tactile tours on select performances.
