#The CBCA and Perform! present Book Week in Schools 2021 LIVESTREAM

Perform! Education

#The #The #The #The #The #The

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.

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. Celebrating the CBCA Book Week 2021 theme: OLD WORLDS, NEW WORLDS, OTHER WORLDS, this interactive and educational musical adventure is a fun filled and energetic celebration of CBCA Book Week 2021, and brings together all the elements of great storytelling - a hero, a mystery, a quest, and an exploration!

The livestream performance is hosted by our Actor/Educator and includes interactive segments for students to answer quizzes, have guided discussions and ask questions in real time! The performance is captured live-on-film with multi-cameras and in high definition, meaning everyone will be watching from the best seat in the house.
Hosting a Perform Education Livestream Incursion means your whole school can be involved whether having a large group viewing, classroom by classroom sessions, or even with individual students included from home.

The session includes an interactive Q&A with the live host for your students to explore some of the themes and key questions connected to the learning points.

With your personal school link, the livestream performance will be available for your whole school to watch on the date/time of your scheduled incursion.
The Livestream e-learning package also includes a range of hands-on educational tools with online interactive games, quizzes, videos and lesson plans for the classroom and at home to extend the engagement and learning, all available for the entire school year!

We provide three different versions of BIGGER, BETTER, BRIGHTER! to suit the age groups watching. You can choose from either; Junior, General or a Senior version.
  • Junior version (P - 3)
  • General version (mixed grades)
  • Senior version (5 - 6)

Students enjoyed the meet the creatives because they were able to ask questions & meet people involved in the show. With all the changes and restrictions happening at the moment it was great to have an online event the whole school could look forward to.

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, 2020

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, 2020

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.
