School Holiday Theatre Shows For Primary School Aged Kids
Our aim is to help relieve the burden of the school holidays for parents by providing hassle free, affordable, fun and entertaining experiences that your child will love.
THEATRE 4 KIDS is theatre designed with parents in mind.
I get your need to find fun and engaging things for your kids to do during the school holidays because I have been there. That's why we create age appropriate, affordable shows performed during the day to entertain your kids, while delivering a great experience that helps you fill the holiday void.
THEATRE 4 KIDS is more than just a show. Imagine a sideshow alley style courtyard where you can have fun from the minute you arrive to the minute you leave.
We have been seeking out other ways to bring the space to life around the show so you and your kids walk away having shared an amazing experience together. On site treasure hunts, games and music are just the start of our exploration.
Being performed in the local area you will save money, access free parking and you won't have to fight traffic or public transport getting to the show

Belmont's award winning actor and director Paul Adams has been providing fun experiences for kids in the holidays for over 15 years.
As Event Director of Wynnum Wipeout (a local school holiday program for High School Students run in January every year), Paul has fielded hundreds of requests from parents to provide more options during the school holidays.
Based on the classic tales by Beatrix Potter, this new original version will hop onto stage in September 2019.
Arrive Early and take part in our site specific Treasure Hunt.
When Peter escapes the drudgery of doing his chores he ends up at Mr McGregor's garden.
After a close call involving a carrot, a mouse and a giant net, Peter has a day filled with hare raising excitement and narrow escapes... but is he bunny enough to save a friend's life?

(turn into the Clearview Urban Village off Clearview Terrace).
Shows start at 10.30am and 1.30pm with a run time of approx 1 hour with no interval.
We want to make it more than just a show. We want to create an experience that will keep your kids talking for days, so arrive early and take part in our site specific Treasure Hunt. To support our community further we will also have a sausage sizzle fundraiser onsite provided by one of our community partners.
Play on with a Play on Pack - A POP!
The show is only one day, so what can we do to help you for the rest of the week?
We know that kids love to recreate and re-enact shows that they have seen. What if you could take the show home with you so the kids can re-live the experience all week long?
Add a POP (a Play On Pack) to your ticket order to access a heap of downloadable resources such as crafts, puzzles and activities all based on the show, that kids can do at home to keep playing in the world of the show for the rest of the week.
You can pre-order your POP now and you will be sent the information to download it closer to the show dates, and because it's downloadable you can purchase once and download it for the whole family.
EXCHANGES / REFUNDS
Dates are transferable (subject to availability) so don't stress if you are not 100% sure which day to attend just yet. Select a day and we can change it later if needed.
Stress free refunds will be available if your situation changes before the season.
One thing we know is that not everyone can afford to come to a theatre show.
Our COMMUNITY CHEST tickets are a way for us all to reach out with our generosity to make a difference in someone else's life. If you are in a position to we have an opportunity for you to give kids in need a chance to experience some school holiday fun.
COMMUNITY CHEST tickets that you purchase will be added to the number we are donating to our community partners. Small Crown Productions is committing 60 tickets and it is our hope that other audience members will help us donate another 60 more through their purchases.
These tickets will be distributed by our community partners to families who are doing it a bit tough so their kids can have some extra fun as well.
There are two options - just a ticket, or a ticket and a POP.

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 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 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.
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.
