Digital Education Package In class + online

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

Adelaide 5 – 14 September 2018

Amphibian

Chloe and Hassan are under suspicion for stealing money while feeding the class Axolotl. Sent outside to work out who’s responsible, the unlikely pair find they have something in common. Each of them has been forced by their parents to leave their respective homes and face life as the new kid at school.

As their personal histories are revealed, Chloe hears the incredible first-hand account of a 12-year-old boy who’s travelled alone, thousands of kilometres across land and sea, for a better life.

Is the discovery of Hassan’s back story enough to save him from Chloe’s desire to protect her position in her new-found friendship group?

For years 5 - 10

Regional South Australia 7 – 21 November 2018

Big Bad Wolf

He’s the most misunderstood character in fairytale history. Put simply he has no friends. But then he does have incredibly sharp teeth, yellow eyes and his own ideas about personal hygiene, and he is the infamous Big Bad Wolf after all. No one likes him. Luckily one girl is brave enough to double check this wolf’s bad press and an unlikely friendship is born.

This hilarious, table-turning tale will have you wondering why you were so scared in the first place.

For years F - 4

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.
