“Attention all students! You are invited to the brilliant, bright, breathtaking Book Week Museum! It’s unlike any museum in the world! Those of you with great imaginations will actually see the the notable and short-listed books on the 2021 Book Week List magically come to life!

This is a pre-recorded show for delivery to schools that cannot have live shows, and includes an overview of the short-listed books.

Our 2021 Virtual Book Week show is an overview of the short-listed books, a narrative based around this year’s theme, (“Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds”), and a fun look at some of the nominated books. It inspires students to read and act out some sensational new stories from Book Week. We highlight the benefits of reading, the power of imagination, and the magic of bringing characters to life.

The show runs for around 35-45 minutes and still include all the elements of a Carp Productions show you’d see live (with additional music and sound effects) We chat straight to camera, and keep the viewers involved as though they are in the room. They're ideal for in-class viewing and discussion. For schools that are currently restricted regarding incursions, anywhere around Australia. Especially designed to celebrate Book Week 2021, this filmed show encourages students to explore:

* Storytelling and narrative
* Book and authors features in the Short List and Notables list
* Characterisation and role-playing
* The transition from books to performance

Ideal for students Prep-Year Three as a stimulus to reading, an introduction to the concept of presentation of narratives, and the benefits of self-confidence and resilience. All our shows contain positive messages about friendship, sharing, self-belief and tolerance. Various acting techniques are employed - music, poetry, puppetry, mime, song and narration - to encourage the students.
