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.
Our stories for the 2018 season are…
Opening stories (choose one)
THE LITTLE RED HEN
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.
