PROGRAM OVERVIEW
One day a girl named Marley woke up to discover that ‘Something’ was missing… And so begins a quest that will lead Marley through destinations that are strange and challenging but often oddly familiar. However, first she must determine what it is that has disappeared from her life that is causing such a sense of emptiness. Fortunately, her story has a narrator
to help her. The thing is Marley sometimes has her own ideas as to how the story needs to be told. There are books around to provide clues and directions which is a great help –if you can figure out what they mean. Marley is determined to sort it out no matter where she travels or what she encounters.
One thing is certain - once the ‘Something’ is recovered, everything will become Bigger, Better, Brighter!

Join Marley and characters from a selection of The CBCA 2021 Shortlisted Books, as she seeks to discover what it is that is missing and how best to recover it.

More Reviews

“The acting brought the books to life. Students who had not read a specific book, were able to retell. So many children wanted the book to borrow and wanted to hear the story again after viewing the performance. Absolutely amazing!”
St Catherine of Siena

“Big Dreams used suspense, laughs and student interaction to explore themes of anxiety and inadequacy in school students. It encouraged the children not to let their fears stop them from living out their “(BIG) Dreams.”
Cowan Public School
