Pre/Primary School Programmes

Pre-School/Primary School Programme – Magic Journey

Each performance goes for 45 minutes and contains three stories which are selected by… YOU! By choosing the stories from our selection that suit you best, you can ensure that your students get the most out of the experience.

Our actors are highly trained, but they are not the stars of the show… your students are! Our Magic Journey programme emphasizes participation and even puts some of your students in starring roles. Every one of your students will be able to participate in the performance.

For our Pre-School audiences, we understand that sometimes a live show in your kinder room may be a little overwhelming for some students. Our actors are aware of the needs of the audience and will adjust a performance to accommodate those needs.

(Each year we like to change our story program, if you are booking for our 2015 season, please click the ‘2015 brochure’ tab at the bottom of the page for this years story choices.)

Our stories for the 2017 season are…

Opening stories (choose one)


It’s a beautiful day on the farm! And The Little Red Hen just wants to back some delicious fresh bread. It’s not easy doing it alone though, and those other farm animals just don’t seem to want to help…
A beautiful poem about the importance of helping other, brought to life with lots of crazy characters. 


One of Australia’s most loved characters who goes for a bike ride you will never forget. Lots of fun and action with wonderful new words to explore!


A beautiful classic poem from the brilliant A.A Milne. Join our narrator as they set out for a nice quiet walk, but can’t seem to stop running into all sorts of funny and silly characters. A wonderful poem brought to life using beautiful language, and lots of fun. 


Main Stories (choose two)


A beautiful traditional dreamtime story makes it much requested return!
Tiddalick the frog is greedy and has drunk all of the water in the billabong! What are all the other animals going to drink? How will they get all the water out of him? If only there was a way to get him to laugh it all up…
This much loved Australian classic is brimming with hilarious native animals, and a great lesson about sharing and teamwork.  


Farmer Kawoski has got a great, big, enormous problem! His turnip has grown and grown and grown, and now it’s too big to pull out of the ground! He’s going to need the help of every person and animal on the farm to fix this problem. Even the teeny, tiny, mouse.
A great lesson in teamwork and helping. 


The Cheekiest Monkey’s around return! 
The Cap seller is having a very hard day. Not one person want’s to buy his caps. And now there’s lots of funny noises coming from that tree… Whoever could that be?
A classic tale of fun and mayhem.


Join Hans and Helga as they tell the famous much loved story. By the way, our troll is really not very scary, but he’s very silly and great fun. A great way to learn about words like big, middle size, and little. Lots of fun for all.
