2019 Primary School Incursion Programme

Grades Prep - 3 and 4 -6.

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

We offer two primary school programmes for students in grades prep to 6.For our grade prep to 3 students we have our 'Magic Journey' programme which combines classic stories, story telling and fables. And for our grade 3 to 6 students we have our 'Banjo' programme which brings together three of Banjo Patterson classic poems in an exciting and crazy education performance of Australiana and bush poetry.
