“Thank you for such a wonderful show, it was engaging and fun, all of the kids were involved and were obviously having fun. Highly professional and highly recommended!”
-Ally Baker, Woori Yallock
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 emphasizes participation and even puts some of your students in starring roles. Each performance goes for approximately 50 minutes and contains three stories which are selected by… YOU! By choosing the stories from our programme that suit you best, you can ensure that your students get the most out of the 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.
OPENING STORIES: (CHOOSE 1)
Lewis Caroll's beloved poem comes to life!
in this strange and fabulous tale we bring all manner of creatures to life, showing students just how much fun you can have with words, whether they're real or made up! It's funny, it's silly and it's very very Bookworm.
MULGA BILL'S BICYCLE
One of Australia’s most loved characters who goes for a bike ride you will never forget. Lots of fun and action with wonderful new words to explore!
PUPPY & I
A young girl sets out for a day of adventure, but everyone else is busy! All she needs is a friend to join her, and this excited little puppy looks like they could be the one!
MAIN STORIES: (CHOOSE 2)
CAPS FOR SALE
A sleepy capseller, some cheeky monkey's and a whole lot of fun. Through repetition, gesture, body language and words the capseller shows us some of the many many ways we can communicate with each other while giving everyone who's watching a very big laugh.
THE 3 LITTLE PIGS
You'll huff, and you'll puff, and you'll laugh yourself silly!
The three little pigs just want to build a nice house to live in, but the Big Bad Wolf has other ideas. But when these three pigs put their heads together the Big Bad Wolf might just wish they'd stayed home instead.
THE LITTLE GINGERBREAD MAN
Laugh! Laugh! Laugh! As hard as you can! You won't stop having fun with The Gingerbread Man!
Life sure is crazy when you're delicious, and our Gingerbread Man is finding out it's not always fun being the most popular person in town.
Crazy characters, funny farm animals and a not-so-fantastic fox make this classic a timeless favorite
THE 3 BILLY GOATS GRUFF
Join Hans and Helga as they tell the famous much loved tale, that has become our most popular story ever! Three great goats and one tricky troll, make for a fantastic lesson in friendship, problem solving and the downside of greediness. Our troll may seem grumpy, but he’s really very silly and great fun.
The goats may come in small, medium and big, but the fun only comes in extra large in this marvellous misadventure.
The minimum performance fee for a Pre-school Magic Journey performance is $395 for up to 40 students in a single session.
