#CBCA and Perform! present CBCA Book Week 2022 LIVESTREAM

Perform! Education


We are proud to be partnering with an organisation that brings quality educational productions into Primary Schools, exploring the CBCA Children’s Book Week themes and promoting literature and the joy of reading in an interactive, fun and engaging way.

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.

I’ve been dreaming…
​Marley wakes up full of excitement and expectation. She’s been dreaming that she has written the most marvelous story and now she’s awake it’s time to set about making it happen. However, the road to creating her story is much more difficult than it first seems. What happens in dreams often isn’t how things turn out and Marley finds herself embarking on a journey filled with unexpected twists and turns. To reach a destination where ‘dream comes true’ she must overcome some pretty significant obstacles.
Dreaming is much more challenging when you’re awake!

Join Marley on her new STORY QUEST adventure as part of CBCA Book Week 2022 and celebrating the CBCA Book Week 2022 theme: "Dreaming With Eyes Open..."
Students will be immersed into the storytelling and interaction with the books featured from the CBCA 2022 shortlist woven into an engaging, original narrative filled with music, adventure and intrigue!

The livestream performance is hosted by your personal Actor/Educator interacting and discussing live-in-real-time with your students and classrooms, as they introduce the filmed educational theatre episodes of the exciting CBCA Book Week adventure. The livestream lesson includes interactive segments for students to answer quizzes connected to the learning points, have guided discussions on the educational themes and ask questions in real time!

"I would like to provide a glowing endorsement of what we as a school just watched/experienced during the performance of Bigger Better Brighter. Thank you to the talented production team and actors/performers. You will be an inspiration to the children in our school community not just because of your amazing performances but because it was underpinned by some important life messages - Hope, Resilience, Emotional engagement with others, Tenacity. Your performance showed the part that Books and Reading can play in understanding and developing these attributes. THANK YOU!" - Mr Coley White Assistant Principal St Canice's Primary School, Katoomba QLD 2021

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.

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.
