Two drama workshops, a gelato-making workshop and a performance inspired by The Little Prince await little ones from 3 to 7 years old this Children’s Day! These workshops celebrate the beauty of innocence, curiosity, imagination and unconditional love, as well as inspire confidence, creativity and a passion for drama.
Stardust (For ages 3 to 4, $60 per child)
9:30 – 11:30am & 3:30 – 5:30pm (ACT 3 Drama Academy)
1:30 – 3:30pm (Kidz Education City)
Reaching for the stars is entirely possible during this workshop. Children will embark on an adventure after going through ‘hurdles’ such as climbing trees, swimming in ponds and searching for that rainbow. May fortune favour the brave!
A Planetary Flight of Fancy (For ages 5 to 7, $60 per child)
9.30am to 11.30am; 3.30pm to 5.30pm (ACT 3 Drama Academy)
4pm to 6pm (Kidz Education City)
This trip of a lifetime will take a school excursion from the Planetarium to the Solar System while discovering the unusual inhabitants on each planet – this is their chance to meet a few vigilant Mercurians, cool Venusians and rusty Martians!
Ice Cream Making Workshop (For ages 4 to 7, $50 per child)
10am to 11.30am; 4pm to 5.30pm (ACT 3 Drama Academy only)
Something to tickle your child’s tastebuds, this workshop by Gelato Cottage will offer hands-on and play-to-learn approaches to making ice cream – without a machine!
The Little Prince (For ages 7 and above, $15 per ticket)
10.30am to 11.15am; no interval
ACT 3 Theatre at 126 Cairnhill Road
A beautiful re-interpretation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince, this famous tale will be brought to life for the whole family to enjoy. The adventure begins as a pilot meets a child who then recounts his journey of leaving his tiny planet and travelling the universe. As the pilot worries about his future, the child gently opens up his heart to love and teaches the pilot to see beauty in the invisible.
