PRIMARY EDUCATION


For many young audiences, a ticket to the theatre can mean a life-long memory. Live theatre has it all – ideas, dance, colour, music, play, communication, stimulation and a chance for children to engage their imagination and sense of whimsy. Children are inspired, enchanted and challenged by the power of theatre where a story book can come to life on stage through the skills of professional performers, colourful sets and costumes, music, songs and lighting. Riverside has been introducing school students to the magic of theatre for 25 years. Each production is carefully selected to entertain and educate with plenty of ideas to explore before and after performances. This year Riverside is proud to offer you and your students a variety of high-quality productions focused on interactive experiences to engage primary aged students . Robert Love

Bringing your students to the theatre is a wonderful experience, but choosing what to see, especially for little ones, can be daunting at times. As a teacher myself, I understand how important it is to know that what you’re booking will be the right fit for your students in terms of their interests and what you would like them to gain. It’s a lot of organising - so you want a successful outcome. In addition to curriculum links and stage recommendations, we’ve added an extra feature this year “From the Education Coordinator”. This is where I comment in plain (non-marketing) language on what I think the reasons are for seeing a particular show. Hopefully this will assist you in your decision-making process. I am always available for a chat if you’re after a more detailed explanation- so call or send me an email, you’ll find my contact details in this brochure. I look forward to assisting you provide your students with the gift of live theatre in 2013..

GRAN’S BAG By Greg Lissaman

Who can resist a good story; especially when it’s being told by Gran?

Writer/Director: Greg Lissaman

When Gran comes to visit, she brings her beautiful big red bag. It is a treasure trove of secrets and small delights. All sorts of surprises emerge, and lots of great stories. The best story of all is about how Gran found her magic carpet bag – or did her bag find her?

Songwriter: Chrissie Shaw

Designers: Imogen Keen & Hilary Talbot

Chrissie Shaw brings the tale to life as the larger than life Gran and pulls the entire show out of her giant red handbag – which seems to have a life of its own. With storytelling, songs, and puppetry, Gran takes us on a fun adventure full of twists and turns. You never know where the story will go next.

Performer: Chrissie Shaw Gran’s Bag is supported by Arts ACT and the State Library of Queensland.

SUITABLE FOR

YEARS K-2

The stories entertain; educate and provide hours of enjoyment so come and join in the fun! “Gran’s Bag was a magical carpet ride into a child’s imagination and an adult’s memorable journey into the delightful world of storytelling. Gran’s Bag’s simplicity was appealing, its design bewitching and its performance endearing.” - Lowdown

From the Education Coordinator… Relationships between children and their grandparents, or members of their families or communities who are in the older generations, can be so important for their social development and can broaden their understanding of the world around them. This show brings with it all the magic of Grandparents along with some wonderful stories and engaging theatrical elements such as puppetry and music. Why not arrange a grandparents day with a little outing to the theatre?

“The students were enthralled with Chrissie, “Gran”, and were keen to listen to the story she was telling. They were particularly interested in the props she used (and songs). Chrissie was happy for the students to engage with her as the storyteller. She was very welcoming to questions asked at the conclusion and shared her “magic” with the students. Great!!” - St Andrew’s Primary School

CDP and Riverside present Tall Stories’ magical musical adaptation of

room on the broom based on the award winning picture book by Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler published by Macmillan Children’s books. “How the cat purred and how the witch grinned, As they sat on their broomstick and flew through the wind…” From the team that brought us the hugely successful The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo’s Child comes another brilliant stage adaptation of a classic tale. This time it’s Room On The Broom, filled with songs, laughs and scary fun for primary aged students. Room on the Broom tells the tale of a friendly witch who takes her broom for a spin, losing her hat, her bow, and her wand in the process, but finding new friends along the way who help her out. SUITABLE FOR

The witch and her cat are flying happily along on their broomstick when a stormy wind blows the witch’s hat, bow and wand away into the night. With the help of a daft dog, a beautiful bird and a friendly frog, her belongings are retrieved. But this broomstick’s not meant for five and – CRACK! - the broom snaps in two! When a hungry dragon appears, who will save the poor witch?

YEARS K-2

And will there ever be room on the broom for everyone? “Winning performances, jaunty songs and some delightful puppetry…Undeniably charming. Four stars”

CDP and Riverside Present SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE PRIMARY PROMS

THE FOUR SEASONS By Antonio Vivaldi

SUMMER, AUTUMN, WINTER, SPRING An intimate and joyful introduction to orchestral music for early primary students. The Four Seasons is Vivaldi’s best-known work, and is among the most popular pieces of Baroque music. Performed live by The Primary Proms Orchestra, the music will take students on a journey through the seasons where a young boy discovers the delights and difficulties of Mother Nature. In this rich musical experience students will have the opportunity to meet the musicians and be introduced to the instruments and their sounds, from the silvery pizzicato notes of winter to the dramatic final movement of the summer thunderstorm.

SUITABLE FOR

YEARS K-4

The Sydney Opera House Proms have now come to Riverside after running for more than 30 years at the Sydney Opera House. It remains the perfect introduction for youngsters to the joys of live performance and storytelling in a relaxed, informal and interactive environment.

From the Education Coordinator… A wonderful way to engage your very young students with orchestral music, and squeeze a little environmental studies in there as well. The Primary Proms format keeps their developmental stage in mind as it guides them through Vivaldi’s famous piece, incorporating movement and interaction where students can do the actions while learning about the natural moods of the four seasons of nature and how they’re represented musically. 11

SEPTEMBER SCHOOL HOLIDAY FUN

Each September during the school holiday break Riverside opens its doors for a week-long event filled with family-orientated theatre, live music and activities. Experience live theatre and concerts and let the kids run wild before and after the shows in our FREE indoor playground and activities. This year, the highlight of SPOT ON will be Monkey Baa’s stage adaptation of Emily Eyefinger! Adapted from the popular book series by Duncan Ball, Emily Eyefinger is the story of a gifted young girl. Born with an extraordinary gift – an eye at the end of her finger. She struggles with being different but also discovers that with her third eye she can solve mysteries, see round corners, rescue friends, and catch dangerous criminals. In fact it’s very handy and an adventure looms at every corner. This is 55 minutes of pure enjoyment, silly antics and good old-fashioned fun for the whole family as Emily, with her best friend Malcolm, Great Aunt Olympia and other chums, embarks on her biggest journey yet, solving the mystery of the Tomb of Tutenkamouse! This is a lighthearted joyous work with resonating themes of identity, respect, self worth and friendship. Suitable for children aged 5 - 10 years
