Animated Adventures
13 & 14 July, 2pm (1hr)
Studio 1
$20
3 – 6 Year olds

A fun and immersive experience for children led through music and sensory play, which transports its participants into an entirely make-believe world. Whether you end up in the deep jungle, a vast, snowy landscape or even outer space, you will become the main characters in your own story! ‘Animated Adventures’ offers a safe space for children to develop skills in drama in their early years, where movement and improvisation play a key role.

Out On Top Circus
13 & 14 July, 2pm (1hr)
Dance Studio
$20
6 – 8 Year olds

The ‘Out on Top Circus’ is a chance for children to come and enjoy all the fun of the circus. They will have the chance to play the role of every performer, as this interactive workshop draws from various strands of circus entertainment. All props and necessary tools will be provided for them to explore many of the traditional skills used today on both the stage and screen, from feather balancing to slapstick comedy. Participants will embrace the role of being ‘a jack many trades’, looking into movement, mime and much more on your first steps into this elaborate form of performance. This is the Greatest Show! Roll up, roll up…
