SYNOPSIS
Our truly original Aussie Christmas tale is perfect for ages 4-12. It is designed to teach students all about the wonderful native flora and fauna that live on our Great Southern Land. Join Rudolph as he meets all manner of Australian animals, from Kangaroos to Koalas, Emus to Kookaburras.

Our performers each take on multiple roles, through costume changes and puppeteering, and this means the students can get up close and personal with tons of Aussie critters, as we dance up and down the aisles; keeping students engaged from the moment they enter the space. We’ll have the students laughing and dancing along with us from start to finish.

The show includes some old classics for you to sing along to and some new gems for the students to enjoy, as we explore key themes of teamwork, problem solving, and overcoming stereotypes through song!

Q&A:
We include a structured and informative Q&A session which supports the school’s delivery of the Critical and Creative Thinking curriculum. We discuss the themes raised in the show and support Inquiry Learning by discussing how we made the set, puppets, music, etc.

“Was great how it was run by you and not just the kids asking random questions. (10/10)” – Bargara State School, Bargara QLD

We provide all of the staging and sound requirements, all we need from you is a performance space 5m by 5m, plus enough room for the students to sit and watch the show.
