2018 Pre-School Programme

Our stories for the 2018 season are...

As Victoria's longest running educational theatre company, with over thirty years experience in presenting theatre to tens of thousands of students across Victoria, The Flying Bookworm Theatre Company can proudly say that we know our audiences and their needs.

Our programmes are carefully selected to ensure we bring vibrancy and theatricality to your students’ learning. You can expect your students to be enlivened, entertained, engaged and educated by their experience, and that your students will leave the performance motivated to build on that experience.

Our actors are highly trained, but they are not the stars of the show… your students are! Our Magic Journey programme emphasises participation and even puts some of your students in starring roles. Each performance goes for 45 minutes and contains three stories which are selected by… YOU! By choosing the stories from our selection that suit you best, you can ensure that your students get the most out of the education experience.

For our kindergarten incursion audiences, we understand that sometimes a live story telling show in your kinder room may be a little overwhelming for some students. Our actors are aware of the needs of the audience and will adjust a performance to accommodate those needs.
