You know we belong together,
You and I forever and ever.
No matter where you are,
You're my guiding star …

We fall into it and out of it, this crazy little thing called love. It’s a battlefield, an open door and it’s even in the air. But what does love really mean to you?

You Know We Belong Together is a story of love; a theatrical celebration of this incredible force of nature that can strike us like a bolt out of the blue. Co-creator and host Julia Hales offers a deeply personal story of her own experiences of love as a daughter, actor, dreamer and person with Down syndrome. Bringing to the stage the voices and aspirations of a community we rarely get to see, You Know We Belong Together is an uplifting tale of love, relationships, acceptance and belonging – and Julia’s life-long dream of appearing on Home and Away. With video, dance and song this world premiere production might just have you hugging your bestie in the aisles.

Duration: 60mins no interval
