The acclaimed new production from Australia’s renowned outdoor theatre producers, Tinkerbell and the Dream Fairies, returns to the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne fresh from a sell out tour to London’s Kew Gardens.
Following rave reviews for their premiere season last summer, Glenn Elston’s (The Wind in the Willows, Alice in Wonderland, Caribbean Pirates) enchanted production is back with an interactive adventure for children aged 3-6. Full of activities, acrobatics and magic it is sure to enthral the young ones these school holidays.
In Tinkerbell and the Dream Fairies, the adventurous Tinkerbell happens upon the fairies from A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Travelling from the dream forest, the cheeky Mustardseed, fluttery Moth, daring Cobweb and sweet Peasblossom all go on a magical quest with Tinkerbell, learning about the different worlds they are from. On the way, Dewdrop – a small fairy played by acrobatic sisters Cierra (8) and Cameron (13) Shook – creates a flurry of fun.
The award-winning artistic director of the Australian Shakespeare Company, Glenn Elston, imagined this special show for young audiences from many years creating theatre in magical garden settings. The show was developed with early learning experts to ensure it truly engages and inspires young minds and bodies.
There is singing, dancing and a special adventure to ‘Bubble Land’ where audience members are asked to help the Fairies find their wings. So pack a picnic and join in the magic!
