KEEP SAFE AND WELL EVERYONE
I have loved every production/play produced or directed by Hannah - they are always full of colour, fun, laughter and of course, drama!
If your kids are seriously into drama they will gain so much from Hannah's expertise - performance skills, teamwork, confidence, problem-solving, self expression, resilience just to name a few things... She's amazing! -

Educational Resources - For Theatre and Arts Companies
We work with professional and amateur theatre/arts companies from around Australia, to create customised educational publications for productions and events. Starting from simple summary worksheets, through to extensive study guides, activity books and publications. All exercises are linked to the themes, historical relevance, design and experiences from a show or event. They are crafted to tie in with the Australian Curriculum, IB and other High School Certificate requirements. Teachers love quality and functional resources they can use in their classrooms! We are happy to work within your company budgets.
We have trained arts specialists/educators working in our team who have vast experience and knowledge of educational trends, standards and requirements. They can be engaged to advise on new works in regards to relevance, themes, appropriateness and accessibility for students aged 4 to 18 years.
The team at Theatre Kids Australia are happy to recommend theatre companies in your area, shows, events and technicians to you... We are working on a page which is updated regularly... In the mean time - Please get in touch if you need any advice!
