Some themes on offer...
Jem and the Little Bear Hunt
Poor Jem ... she’s packed the perfect picnic but there’s one very special ingredient still missing. Where, oh where is her teddy bear?!! Join Jem as she hunts for Freddy the Teddy with the help of her trusty bear hunting manual. Using the much loved children’s classic ‘We’re Going On A Bear Hunt’, Jem & The Little Bear Hunt combines music, movement and audience participation in a fun-filled and warmhearted romp.
Jem and the Garden Party
It’s another wonderful sunny day in the Land of Whimzie…
Join Jem on a vibrant, energetic and fun celebration of the natural world as we journey through the colourful garden and discover all of the teensy weensy wriggly things that live there, find the hidden magic amongst the flowers, and learn how we can help the plants grow and take care of our beautiful planet.
Jam along with Jem as we discover lots of styles of music, rhythms, percussive movements with our bodies, and get to know some different instruments. We will also explore how music can make us feel, and how it can be used for storytelling. A wonderful interactive show with some loud and quiet moments. Suitable for ages 3 - 8
A Visit from Fairy Jem
Fairy Jem is fluttering into your library or childcare centre from her home in the Australian bush. She has stories to tell about all the animal friends in the bush, with lots of songs to go along with them. She will bring some furry friends with her for you to meet and sing along with.
Can include a 45 minute craft workshop making ‘forest friends’ with natural materials
Jem's Magic Mystery Box - Tailored Show
This is where we get to be creative with a fantastically fun ‘lucky-dip’ show! A mini-production tailored especially for your little audience, featuring your chosen theme… perhaps it is a topic you are currently exploring at your centre, or a book or theme that is trending in your library. Each time Jem opens the Magic Mystery Box, a new item is presented, be it part of a costume, a tool, or a picture, and we will discover its creative uses and learn about it through a story and of course, lots of music and giggles!
