What is Theatre 4 Kids?

​T​HEATRE 4 KIDS is ​theatre designed with parents in mind.  


We know ​the never ending need to find fun and engaging things for your kids to do during the holidays.  We ​aim to serve you by ​providing age appropriate, affordable shows performed during the day to entertain your kids, while delivering a great experience that helps you fill the holiday void.  


​​Performed during the school holidays we want THEATRE 4 KIDS be more than just a show.  We want it to be fun from the minute they set foot in the space to the minute they leave.  We have been seeking out other ways to bring the space to life around the show so your kids walk away raving about the whole experience.  On site treasure hunts, games and music are just the start of our exploration.


It will be launched in 2019 focusing the work initially in Brisbane's South East Corner which includes suburbs from East Brisbane to Lytton, Bulimba to Belmont.  By presenting it locally we ​will reduce the costs involved, saving you money on trasport, parking and your time.


​​​We cannot wait to create something you and your kids look forward to every school holidays.

PAST PRODUCTIONS

1066:
The Bayeux Tapestry Brought to Life

Written by

Paul Adams and Penny Farrow


1066 translated the imagery of the famous Bayeux Tapestry into a mesmerising theatrical spectacular.​

Filled with music, dance, digitally animated images of the actual tapestry and a set made of fabric, this show was a visual delight.

TWEET SUMMERS

​conceived and directed by Paul Adams

​Tweet Summers was Australia's first live theatre performance on the Social media Platform Twitter.

By following the character profiles the audience watched the story ​through the tweets posted in real time by the characters.

Based on Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Nights Dream' this story unfolded in one continuous ​four week long performance.  

Tweet Summers was performed by five actors, with four living in Brisbane and one in London, England.

THE THREE TWEETLE PIGS

conceived and directed by Paul Adams

The Three Tweetle Pigs was the second Live show performed on Twitter by Small Crown Productions.  

Based on the classic children's tale 'The Three Little Pigs' this story took some fun twists when it was revealed that the Big Bad Wolfe was a private investigator searching for clues in a Truffle Trafficking Crime.  

This show was performed by five actors, with four performing from Brisbane and one actress performing while on tour down the west coast of Australia with a different production.  

POWER KIDS

​Story time

Contracted to the Brisbane Powerhouse, Small Crown Productions delivered a series of improvised story time sessions as part of the 'Power Kids' school holiday program.  

Armed with nothing but boxes of thrift shop clothing Paul led the kids through stories made up on the spot based on suggestions from the kids themselves.
