A show celebrating everyone’s unique capabilities, “Proud To Be Me!” encourages students to explore their special skills and qualities, and learn about self-esteem, the importance of friendship, acceptance and diversity, cooperation and teamwork. Learn ‘all about me’ in this entertaining performance!
FAIRYTALE FEAST! (Fairytales)
“See some tasty fairytales come to life in this show full of fairytale food! Includes the story of The Gingerbread Man”
A unique take on traditional fairytale performance, including up-to-date music and references to popular culture,“Fairytale Feast!” brings many much-loved characters to life and inspires students to love literature! It also explores the differences and similarities between fairytales, participation in performance, characterisation and role-playing, and the transition from books to performance.
TOO MANY TOYS! (Toys)
“Danny has too many toys! They cover the bed, they cover the floor, his parents can’t cope with the mess any more. It’s time to interview each toy and decide which ones to keep The Talkative Teddy? The Lively Lego? The Unique Unicorn? Or the Testy Toy Soldier? Dress up and move as a toy. Learn about their history. Help Danny discover that the most valuable toy may cost nothing at all!”
An action-packed show highlighting the many uses and purposes of modern and olden day toys. We look at why different toys are designed in their own particular styles, and who they are targeted at, as well as: the history of toys; how different toys compare to each other; the way they move; what they’re made from; and the forces used to make toys move by themselves.
CARP’S 2023 CBCA BOOK WEEK SHOW! (Book Week)
“Come with us for a magical adventure, as we explore the 2023 Book Week books – and see them come to life! The theme for Book Week 2023 is ‘Read, Grow, Inspire’”

BULLY FREE ZONE! (Bullying)
“Bull is a bully. He teases all the other farmyard animals, until one day his friends stand up to him and help him realise he needs to change his ways. A show about friendship, developing empathy skills, and addressing a range of anti-bully strategies”
“Bully Free Zone” takes an inclusive, positive approach to the question of social interaction and bullying at the primary school level, presenting the story of a misbehaving Bull who needs to learn why his actions are harmful to others, and start to become a better friend to others around him. It’s a perfect introduction to the topic for lower Primary School students, offering not only a guide to better social interactions, but also a strategy for those who encounter bullying in their own social groups.
