Fancy Long Legs

Weave your web and make your mark.

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.

Fancy Long Legs is a groundbreaking, fully accessible work for young audiences and the young at heart. This uplifting story takes a sparkly and relatable look at neurodivergence, offering a playful and glitter-covered adventure of acceptance, staying true to yourself, celebrating differences and harnessing your inner fanciness!

The show 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.
