The students enjoyed the intimate nature of watching the performance in their own classroom spaces and were more inclined to join in the singing and dancing with minimal embarrassment and awkwardness.

Charlie is feeling just a bit overwhelmed. He does his best but sometimes his best doesn’t seem good enough, especially when he compares himself to other kids who seem to make difficult tasks look so easy. And then there are chores, and an annoying little sister to contend with at home. Like any other kid Charlie has dreams – to be a rock star, explore different places, be a scientist that solves the problems of the world – but they seem to get further away every day. To be honest he’d be happy if he could find the space to have just a bit more fun now and then. Charlie wonders that maybe a miracle is what he needs to change things for the better. However when something totally unexpected reveals that there are miracles happening all around him, he needs to figure out what to do with them.
Will some of the books that Charlie recently discovered provide a clue?

"My students enjoyed the interactive dancing. It got them out of their seats and the steps were easy to follow. They also enjoyed hearing their answers to questions being shared and enjoyed the voting system." - Xavier Cathollic College, QLD, 2023

More Reviews

The students were engaged in everything that they saw, the actors and the story. They absolutely loved being able to hear the responses that we sent during the show and really enjoyed the dance moves and music.
Blandford Public School

It was really valuable to have differing performances for the different age groups. The students were very engaged & sang & danced. Messages & themes behind the production extended beyond the love of books & linked beautifully with the student attitudes.
St Agatha's Catholic Primary School

We loved the virtual [livestream] incursion. We are a tiny rural school and can not always afford to have a cast and crew come out so this was a great option for us. The Q&A was excellent. Thank you.
Chillingham Public School

The teachers loved the flexibility of when to schedule their own show working around their timetables. The support materials were amazing - you left nothing to chance covering so many aspects in great detail to ensure everyone got the most out of it.
