Glasshouse Port Macquarie and CDP Kids presents
Magic Beach - Live on Stage
A play by Finegan Kruckemeyer
Based on the book by Alison Lester
At our beach, at our magic beach…
Every year, an everyday family go on a beach holiday. This isn’t just any beach - it’s Magic Beach, where everything you can imagine becomes real. But this year is different. As the eldest child begins to grow up, does she have to leave the magic behind?
Alison Lester AM’s classic book comes to life on stage in a wonderful world of text, song, light, shadow and movement for children aged 3-8.
From the team behind The Gruffalo and The 13-, 26-, 52-, 78- and 91-Storey Treehouses, this new Australian adaptation from multi-award winning playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer is a celebration of the power of the imagination and the differences that make every child special.
Teacher Resource Kit
Magic Beach will be supported by a high-quality in-depth Teacher Resource Kit including detailed curriculum links and a range of activities which can be used in the classroom both pre- and post-show. The producers will also be offering digital workshops (dates to be announced) for participating schools. Led by an experienced digital educator, these hands-on workshops will allow students to explore the themes of the production and the processes of theatre-making.
