Testimonial."Dear Therase What a wonderful morning that was! We loved the way the story was put across to the children in a fun and entertaining way, getting across some very important messages to the children. The simplicity of the performance was what stood out as most impressive and your sweet singing voice!! That was such a delight to listen to. The children would have loved to hear you sing a little more! Thank you." Heritage House, Pennant Hills, Sydney February 2015.
Areas: NSW. Sydney (all areas) Central Coast, Newcastle and the Hunter region and the Blue Mountains.
For Primary School Year 1 audiences we look at the language features of a narrative. Performer emphasis for this show is on the descriptive qualities of a narrative, aiming to encourage children to expand their literary vocabulary when writing and imagining their own stories. Our beautiful magical narratives are food for the soul, helping to nourish the imaginations of your little writers.
Allow one of our magical storytellers to lead you on a captivating story through time! Relive the adventure with Blue Whale Theatre as together, we recreate popular and traditional stories through beautiful music, song, mime, sound affect and finger puppetry.
Actively engaging with the story the children are invited to help the character to do the right thing and make the right choices. "Was that the right thing to do? What should Goldilocks have done??" Helping the character to make the right choices when ethical issues are raised, helps the children to connect and contribute to their world in a positive way.
Testimonal. “The surprise and delight on their faces was priceless! The show was engaging and interactive, allowing the children to participate in dance, counting and singing. Overall the show was extremely professional and covered a wide range of educational information/experiences. The children loved the follow up postcard and are still talking about the show weeks later! Thank you again." Director, Redhead Community school, Newcastle Children's book Week.
Through interaction with the character in the story and problem solving the children learn to become confident and involved learners. With Blue Whale Theatre they can relive and help change the end of the story through focussed discussion. Communicating verbally and non verbally within the experience, also helps them to learn to be effective communicators.
