G'Day Asia

Depending on whether you are in Bali on Nyepi day, China for New Year or at the Imperial Japanese Court for an audience with the Emperor and Empress, will determine whether you have special clothes to wear, flags to fly, effigies to burn, protocols to observe or huge dragons to manipulate and lots of noise to make.


Excellent audience participation and involvement. Informative use of factual information reinforcing the stage 3 HSIE topics Bali, and global connections. Audience was engaged and under control. Created interest with puppetry and costumes. Shared audience involvement with all ages.

Pick a Peck of Pickled Poems

In Pick a Peck of Pickled Poems the poetry is not just read or recited, it is acted out and brought to life with a variety of character voices, costumes, puppets and props. The seven poems from the late 1800’s are just as funny today as they were when they were first written. Spanning across 130 years these carefully selected poems cover a range of genres, topics and perspectives. With just over twenty poems, an audience participation section, a song and the hilarious humanette puppet finale, this show really moves along.


Very entertaining and Hugh made a point of linking it with our school-wide focus of ‘being a writer.’
