Curious Legends and Newcastle Region Library are creating an awesome performance about Newcastle’s history next week – giant puppets, ghosts and Aboriginal Dreamtime stories are just some of the cool parts of the show. They’re performing outdoors in Civic Park and they need your help!
Today artists from Curious Legends visited our school to get our help making shadow puppets for their project. They would love our help to perform with them too!
Next Friday 5th May, you’re invited to come and perform in Civic Park with professional artists from the Curious Legends company. There will be lots of other kids from other schools around Newcastle as well as many community participants.
Kids who come along next Friday will have all kinds of fun – this may include animating the shadow puppets we made today, making a fish swim, ‘riding’ a cane bicycle and joining in the parade at the end! Parents are encouraged to participate with their kids – there’s lots of ways for everyone to get involved.
To take part, follow the steps below:
*Email Curious Legends to let them know you’re coming: firstname.lastname@example.org
*Come along to one of their open rehearsals in Civic Park on May 2 and 3 from 4pm-6pm.
*Be at Civic Park no later than 3.45pm on Friday 5th May for the final rehearsal.
*Bring a picnic rug to the performance and prepare for a great evening!
There will be hot drinks and food available to purchase on the night.
