MAGIC JOURNEY

We take your students on a magic journey in to the world of books, consisting of theatrical presentations of popular stories and poems. We motivate students to participate in the performance- they become some of the characters and act our the stories. This unique ‘Bookworm’ approach has been widely praised by teachers across Australia since 1978.

Our stories are carefully selected to ensure we bring vibrancy and theatricality to your students’ learning. You can expect your students to be enlivened, entertained, engaged and educated by their experience, and will leave the performance motivated to build on that experience.

Each performance goes for approximately 50 minutes and contains three stories which are selected by... YOU! By choosing the stories from our programme that suit you best, you can ensure that your students get the most out of the experience. Our story selection changes each year and include poetry, fairytales and world stories. You can find our 2022 story choices below.

For our junior audiences, we understand that sometimes a live storytelling show in your classroom 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.

Join Hans and Helga as they tell the famous much loved tale, that has become our most popular story ever! Three great goats and one tricky troll, make for a fantastic lesson in friendship, problem solving and the downside of greediness. Our troll may seem grumpy, but he’s really very silly and great fun. 
The goats may come in small, medium and big, but the fun only comes in extra large in this marvellous misadventure.

A sleepy capseller, some cheeky monkey's and a whole lot of fun. Through repetition, gesture, body language and words the capseller shows us some of the many many ways we can communicate with each other while giving everyone who's watching a very big laugh.

Jack trades his cow for some beans and it leads to an adventure he could never imagine. Filled with giants, beanstalks and golden eggs.
