As a new year of classroom learning commences following several years of disruptions, many local schools are looking forward to returning to live entertainment to enrich their student’s learning.
A brand-new stage adaptation by Richard Tulloch of Sam McBratney’s beloved book Guess How Much I Love You, playing at the Glen Street Theatre 3rd – 5th March, is one of the first opportunities for students to experience the theatre this year.
Head of K – 2 at Oxford Falls Grammar, Karen Rose, is looking forward to bringing her students to see the classic picture book on stage.
“Our young students have had a few difficult years of uncertainty due to lockdowns and we want to start this new year with something fun and educational they can easily relate to.
“Taking children to see a book adaptation on stage is the perfect way to engage even the most reluctant readers and a unique way for students to interact with a text.”
In this dazzling new show presented by CDP Theatre Producers, children and their educators or families will join the enchanting adventure of Little and Big Nutbrown Hare.
This playful story of love and nature unfolds, with beautiful puppetry, music, and laughter as they discover the magic and colour of the seasons.
From the team behind the Australian tours of The Gruffalo, The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show and Spot, this family favourite will excite, educate, and entertain new readers and first-time theatregoers.
