Adelaide Fringe 2011
Theatre for children and particularly where it is educational with a Q&A afterwards makes for interesting viewing. This form of theatre is very telling about how effective a live production can be as a vehicle for delivering ‘heavy’ themes/ lessons/ facts/ knowledge, and how well the actual performance delivers by getting these across to an audience, and how engaged the audience remain throughout the production. So if the full house of mostly Year 5 girl students is anything to go by, A Past Of Beginnings receives the tick of approval across all these areas!
Thumbs up for the role of theatre in education, for Canberra College and not only for thoroughly entertaining audiences, but letting us learn a few new things as well!
