Fairytale Cookbook – The Show

Regional Arts Victoria

Fairytale Fairytale

“…a celebration of raw spontaneity and shared creativity.” – Australian Stage

From Impro Melbourne

Open The Fairytale Cookbook, choose your ingredients, and let us whip you up an improvised fairytale like you've never seen before. Start off with a Hero, add a splash of Pirate King, or spice it up with a Witch... the choice is yours!

The Fairytale Cookbook Performance is an improvised format created especially with kids in mind. The audience helps cast the actors, choose the characters for the tales, and guide the Hero safely (or dangerously!) through the adventure they have created.

Linking to AusVELS levels F - 4 The Fairytale Cookbook encourages students to listen, respond, share ideas and think creatively. The story creation ‘recipe’ from the show can immediately be taken back into the classroom to continue developing the students’ skills in storytelling and creative writing.
