Mums and Dads, bring your kids down to Central for an imported wholesome, family-friendly, colourful & entertaining musical.  Kayla’s Adventures in Candyland is filled with quirky multi-hued costumes and original music compositions.  This 30 minute performance is open to all Central shoppers and is free for all at the Candy Forest at level 1 of the mall.  At Candy Forest, you will get to enjoy a visual experience of life-size 3 dimensional props such as a 5m tall customized life-size Tree house and a 4.5m tall customized life-size Giant Mushroom.

Follow Kayla through her journey as she encounters the mayhem of Gum Ballers, the sinister Liquorice Twists and the threat of Chocolate Crackles.  Cheer for Kayla’s determination as she defies all odds to free the Candy Fairies and defeat the nefarious Sour Queen’s bitter reign.
