Fairytales & Puppetry: Good Things Come In Threes
Available terms 1 & 2
About the show:
Three of our favourite fairy tales are performed using puppetry. But here’s the twist! The students pick which story is told with which style of puppetry.
Between each story the performers show the students how the puppets work.
Key Themes: Fairy tales, Puppetry, Pantomime.
Curriculum Areas: Literacy, Critical & Creative Thinking; Arts
Key Learning Areas: Creative Writing, Drama, Music, Dance.
Suitable for: Prep to Grade 3.
We use three styles of puppetry (Marionettes, Shadow Puppetry & Hand Puppets) to tell three fairy tales – The Three Billy Goats Gruff, Goldilocks & The Three Bears and The Three Little Pigs. By spinning a wheel the students choose which story will be told and by picking out of a hat they choose the style of puppetry we perform. After each story we show how the puppets work and let some students have a go.
$7.95 (exc. GST) per student.
