CARP PRODUCTIONS’ LIBRARY SHOWS – SEPTEMBER SCHOOL HOLIDAYS!

Carp Productions have had a great time performing around Melbourne – and other parts of Victoria! – in the September school holidays. We had lots of primary school holiday program shows, and a number of other special private events along with our shows for libraries. We’ll be performing around libraries in the lead-up to Christmas and we’ll be back in the January school holidays for more fun shows. Keep an eye out here for upcoming performances!

CARP ARE NOW TAKING BOOKINGS FOR OUR 2022 CHRISTMAS SHOW!

Bookings are starting to fill up for our 2022 Christmas Show, “Santa’s Lost His Ho Ho Ho!” – they won’t last long! If you’d like to book the show for your School, Pre-School or Library, contact us on 0418 574505, or via our contact form.

“It’s the night before Christmas. The Christmas Tree is twinkling. The reindeer are ready. The presents are piled high. But something is missing at the North Pole – Santa has lost his laugh! Instead of saying “Ho, Ho, Ho”, he’s saying “Oh No, No No!” Help our Christmas friends bring Santa’s laugh back in time for his trip around the world on Christmas Eve! It’s a fun-filled show, with reindeer, elves, snowmen, presents and Christmas treats.

Our highly popular Christmas show is back for 2022, incorporating all the fun and magic of the most magical day of the year, with opportunities for children to join in the performance and develop skills such as characterisation and speaking before an audience. It’s laugh-out-loud fun for everyone, including the teachers! A great way to finish the year for schools and pre-schools, and guaranteed festive fun for libraries and holiday programs!

 

 

 

 

FEATURED SHOWS – TERM THREE AND FOUR!

Aside from our popular Christmas Show, we also have other featured shows for Term Four:

PRIMARY SCHOOLS – FUNNY FAIRYTALES!

“There’s trouble in Fairytale Land – Prince Charming is tired of the Princesses getting all the glory – so he’s leaving his story! He has decided to explore other fairytales and find a happier ending – for him. But Rapunzel can’t hear a word he says, and Sleeping Beauty is snoring!”

A unique take on a traditional fairytale performance, including dance music and references to popular culture,“Funny Fairytales!” 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. It’s an interactive show, including participation by the whole audience – AND roles for selected students to play in the show! Includes the stories ‘Rapunzel’, ‘The Billy Goats Gruff’ and ‘The Three Little Pigs’.

 

LIBRARIES – ZOO PARTY!

Welcome to the Hullaballoo Zoo! There are so many things to see and do! Mr I M Cuckoo is ready to show you all the amazing animals, including the exotic birds, the fun-loving bears and our giggly orangutan Gertie… but something’s wrong! The animals are sad and need cheering up. It’s time for a Zoo Party, with games, dancing and silly stories. You can help too! Join us as we have fun with animals from all over the world”

A fun way to meet the different animals of the world, see how they move, and join in with stories, games and dancing. This show is perfect for the 3-10 year olds, with guaranteed laughs for everyone – even the parents! A great way to start the summer.

 

PRE-SCHOOLS – DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY!

“Mr I M Serious is presenting his Very Serious Performance today, with a Humourless Horseman, a Solemn Seal, a Dour Dragon and Moody Magic. But his talented bunny Hoppy McHopperton has gone missing, and Funny Bunny is now running the show – and it’s very, very silly! There’s funny dancing, silly songs, mixed-up magic, and even a story about a clown in search of his missing laugh! The air is full of laughter. Maybe even I M Serious can learn the power of humour to make us happy!”

Carp Productions present a show dedicated to making YOU happy, with lots of dress-ups, music and dancing, funny jokes and participation for all the children. We’re developing an entirely new silly show for 2023, so make sure you don’t miss out on this one! It’s been a massive hit with all audiences, and it’s just the thing to send the children into the holiday season with smiles on their faces. Don’t miss out!
