Through the use of song, dance and storytelling to engage the young audience, the children are taught things such as letters, numbers, and shapes, with the characters on stage interacting directly with the audience.

Each child receives a bag of toys which help them interact with the actors on stage through each activity and song – and the kids get to take this “toolkit” with them so they can continue the fun at home!
