With over thirty years experience in presenting theatre to tens of thousands of students across Victoria, The Flying Bookworm Theatre Company can proudly say that we know our audiences and their needs.
Our performances cater for students at pre-school, primary and secondary school levels. All productions are linked to curriculum designs.
A Flying Bookworm presentation will bring vibrancy and theatricality to your students’ learning. Expect students to be enlivened, entertained, engaged and educated by their experience. Anticipate that your students will leave the performance motivated to build on that experience.
The Flying Bookworm Theatre Company tours throughout the school year and reaches all corners of Victoria. Have theatre company, will travel. And that means to your door!
Our actors are spectacular, but they are not the stars of the show… your students are! Our Magic Journey programme emphasizes participation and even puts some of your students in starring roles. Every one of your students will be able to participate in the performance.
Each performance runs for 45 minutes and contains three stories which are selected by… YOU! By choosing the stories from our selection that suit you best, you can ensure that your students get the most out of the experience.
For our Pre-School audiences, we understand that sometimes a live show in your kinder room may be a little overwhelming for some students. Our actors are aware of the needs of the audience and will adjust a performance to accommodate those needs.
Our stories for the 2017 season are…
