Adelaide 26 February - 6 March 2019

Baba Yaga

Vaselina lives the quiet life, working as a receptionist in a very tall apartment block. But all that changes when she is forced to confront a terrifying resident who plays her music far too loudly and eats jelly babies with her mouth open.

Who is this mysterious neighbour? Will she ever turn the music down? And what exactly is she planning for dinner?

Direct from a critically acclaimed, sell out season at the 2018 Edinburgh International Children’s Festival, Baba Yaga is a brand new take on an old Russian folktale co-created by director Rosemary Myers and two unique and celebrated artists from opposite ends of the globe; Shona Reppe (Scotland; The Curious Scrapbook of Josephine Bean) and Christine Johnston (Australia; The Kransky Sisters).

For years 2 - 8

Adelaide 29 - 31 May 2019

Beep

A slightly sideways tale about unexpected friendship, finding where you fit and learning to mix it up a little.

In Mort’s Village everything has its place, every day is the same and everyone likes it that way. Until one morning, crash, boom, bang… down comes Beep.

What is this annoying interruption to Mort’s breakfast molly melon, who is this noisy robot girl, and how will she find her home?

With Windmill’s trademark design, gentle storytelling, music and puppetry, Beep tells the story of what happens when someone new comes to town.

For years Pre - 2

Adelaide 12 - 20 September 2019

Girl Asleep

Mayhem. Adventure. Hormones.

Greta Driscoll is chronically shy and privately falling apart.

Frozen in the spotlight of her fifteenth birthday, things go from bad to worse when a stranger arrives propelling her into a parallel place; a latent world that’s weirdly erotic, violent and thoroughly ludicrous.

Part fairytale and part lipstick-smeared vigilante escapade, this is a girl’s own adventure where heroism and gender implode in a unique exposé of the sisterhood.

Now’s your chance to see the play that went on to become an internationally award-winning film.

For years 8 - 12

Digital Education Package In class + online

Girl Asleep

After bringing your students to see the play, expand their experience with the film adaptation of Girl Asleep.

Based on the critically acclaimed production by Windmill Theatre Co, the film adaptation of Girl Asleep is a journey into the absurd, scary and beautiful heart of the teenage mind.

Our new comprehensive digital Education Package consists of the film, study guide, and access to An Interactive Journey, an online resource for students to explore the set, meet the cast and crew, and take a quiz to discover their ultimate film role.

For years 9 - 12

Book a Performance

To secure your preferred day and time we recommend you book early as the shows can sell out quickly.

We appreciate that when booking in advance you might not know the exact number of students, but a close as possible estimate will give us an indication of how many to reserve, and we’ll confirm exact numbers closer to the date. We can also hold the tax invoice until numbers are confirmed.

Education Resources

Detailed Study Guides linked to the Australian Curriculum, The Early Years Learning Framework and SACE are provided free to schools that book performances. These explore The Arts, linked learning areas, the General Capabilities and the Cross Curriculum Perspectives where applicable. The guides include information related to the creative team, pre and post-performance activity ideas, curriculum tasks and other learning areas.
