“A clever play…challenging for the young actors; a challenge they all handle very well…. This is definitely a company worth watching out for in the future.”

Glam Adelaide 

 

“A unique and thought provoking piece of theatre… including both humour and drama, but one which adults and children alike can relate to… The entire troupe deserved the applause they received after performing the

challenging piece.

“Congratulations to the Prospect Theatre for Young People… on a jam-packed observation of some of the challenges children in the upper primary years face. The performances were fantastic…The messages were clear, strong and positive…and there was a lot of discussion on our way home about what we’d seen.”

“It was an excellent show… We loved the diary writing theme that wove through the play… The topics covered were great and the children did a fantastic job. Everyone came away raving about it.”

Aimed at kids in the upper primary years, the show presents eight stories told through the diary entries of “everyday kids”.

 

The stories explore issues such as bullying, body image and friendship, as well as taking kids on a

journey of migration to SA, flying them through space in a rocket simulator and finishing with a

drumming extravaganza!

 

GREEN STORIES

CLICK ON IMAGE TO ENLARGE  

All four PTFYP drama groups created stories based on local environmental themes, such as walking and riding bikes instead of driving cars to help keep the air clean, reducing waste to landfill by reusing and recycling, using less water and looking after local native animals. In a twist, these stories were told through the genres of fantasy, cartoon and mystery, and included:

 

Where Have All the Native Animals Gone?  |  7 – 9 year olds

The Clubhouse  |  9 – 11 year olds

The Sponge and Aqua Girl  |  10 – 12 year olds

Renovation Challenge! And Mystery Under McCarr’s Cars  |  12 – 15 year olds

 

 

HOPSCOTCH, CHOOKS AND SLIGNSHOTS

REVIEWS

“Hopscotch, chooks and Slingshots is a terrific show. It feels like a hazy 

afternoon in an era of tree climbing, street cricket and the depression, Beautifully welded together with the voices of a previous generation, an all child cast present the wonderment of growing up in simpler times when life didn’t involve media, technology and TV.”

Rebecca Kemp  ABC Radio

 

“Children watching this performance will get a glimpse of how their lives might have been in earlier times. Older people will marvel at the richness and 

authenticity of the reminiscences and enthusiasm of the performances.

The Fringe needs more of this.”

Stories of childhood from local residents who grew up in Prospect in the 1930’s and 40’s, performed by the kids from Prospect Theatre for Young People. 

 

Memories of pet chooks in the back yard, school yards with a line down the middle separating boys and girls, reading old Mandrake comics in Grandma’s dusty woodshed, seeing older brothers off to the

Second World War, air raid shelter drills at school and playing cricket in the street with friends until the sun went down…

 

 

KIDSTORIES 2

PROSPECT TOWN HALL   |   JUNE 2012

Three stories from the imaginations of the kids in the three drama groups:

 

The Magical Crystal:

A group of scientists head into a deep cave in search of a magical crystal that will help to cure all illnesses. At the same time, a school group goes on an excursion to explore the cave. Little does either group know that the cave is guarded by some mysterious creatures who do not want to let the crystal go….

 

The Old Theatre

Two sisters go to an old theatre to see a ballet performance, but the theatre seems to be haunted. They are transported back in time to the lives of an early Australian family who lived in a house on the site of the theatre, which was burned down in mysterious circumstances…

 

A Mysterious Man and a Bag

A group of kids hanging out in the park notice a mysterious man carrying a bag. When he leaves the bag behind, the kids investigate, only to be drawn into the bag and then into the future to the Planet Zepton. They discover a world of talking heads, alien queens and a message about taking care of their own planet.
