Virtual Book Week Show A Winner!

19 November 2020

We spent a very enjoyable afternoon in the office watching Books to Life's adaptation  of Sophie Blackall's "Hello Lighthouse." What was to be a National Tour became a virtual production when the company was stranded in Victoria.

We absolutely loved the show. The integration of the book into the story, the singing, the acting and high quality production values, more than brought this book to life. It was excellent. 

Along with a link to the show, the company includes the reading of the story by the author, lots of ideas for props that the students can have with them when they're participating in the show and a link to a 45 minute Q & A that can be accessed when convenient.

Tony Appleby's long experience as a performer and writer, along with his teaching background has informed the creation of a show that is valuable in it's own right. It shouldn't be seen as a video of an incursion, rather it's a new form, and unlike live incursions, it's available wherever you are. 

We hope companies like Books to Life consider offering a virtual incursion of their work in the future. No one company can get to all the schools that would like a show, this way they can.

Go here for details.
