From ninja nans to Play Along with Sam, the fifth annual festival has lots to choose from
For kids from dot to 12 years old, the Spot On Children’s Festival has a packed program of live theatre, storytelling, music and films during the school holidays. There’ll be haunted backpacks, ninja nans, vomiting puppets and fully automatic toilet-paper guns from comedy duo the Listies, as well as a Helpmann Award-nominated show of faraway lands, Oscar Wilde’s The Young King.
For gentler storytelling, Curious Jac is back at the Riverside Theatres with bilingual storyteller Lilli Pang, Play Along with Sam is a whole family experience of music and imagination and The Owl’s Apprentice combines shadow and hand puppetry with physical comedy. Spot On Children’s Festival also has relaxed performances to cater for young audiences with anxiety or additional needs.
For $10, kids and parents can step into the cinema room for animated films including Maya the Bee Movie, The Iron Giant: Signature Edition, Kubo and the Two Strings and Blinky Bill the Movie. And if you’re looking for a brand-new adventure, audiences can step inside a pop-up fairy tale forest for an immersive storytelling adventure in an experience called In A Deep Dark Forest.
