As part of the Melbourne and Sydney Fringe 2019, children's theatre group, Musical Sprouts, will premiere their delightfully fun and interactive show, 'A Day in the Life of You', from Saturday September 21- Sunday September 22 at Actors Centre Australia in Leichhardt. Featuring original songs, live instruments, dancing and lots of audience participation, this clever and creative 50 minute show written specifically for children ages two to six tackles all the big issues in a little person's daily life and ensures a love of music will blossom in every mini audience member.
Tickets are on sale now and are $20 for adults and $20 for children. Concession and group (4+) tickets are $18.
'A Day in the Life of You' features 3 'Sprouts'- Yella, Blueno and Reddy, each of whom have their own unique and charming personalities. During this playful and educational show which centres around the challenges of the youngest character Yella, the 'Sprouts' address the daily challenges of growing up, such as eating a healthy breakfast and learning to brush teeth, getting dressed, cleaning up and going to the toilet. By the end of the show, Yella learns all about independence, self-care and social emotional skills whilst little audiences come away with a renewed sense of confidence and musicality.
The Musical Sprouts performers Bridget a'Beckett, Sharni Page and Julia Davis have all enjoyed successful professional theatre careers. After they became mothers, instinctively they began looking for a new way to express themselves creatively within their changed lives. This unique collaboration of Musical Sprouts came from a shared belief that a love of music can shape a life. The first season of 'A Day in the Life of You' was presented in October 2018 in Melbourne with follow up Melbourne seasons in early 2019. Musical Sprouts have just secured funding through the VicHealth Gender Equity program for 2020 to develop a new musical for children exploring emotional literacy in small children.
Sydney Fringe Festival is the largest independent arts festival in NSW, representing thousands of artists across all art forms. It has built a reputation for nurturing and supporting emerging artists, presenting established artists in the development of new works, promoting small to medium sized venues and activating public spaces. In addition to the presentation of art, this festival engages the local community of residents and supports small business and nighttime economy. This festival aims to give a voice to those who produce work all year round and compete with main stage events for publicity, and large corporations for custom. This festival represents the cultural heart of the city and celebrates all things Sydney from local community groups to well-known touring artists.
Writer/performer Bridget a'Beckett who performs as Yella, says of the upcoming Sydney Fringe Festival performances, "We are so thrilled to be selected for a special place in the Kids Hub at Sydney Fringe 2019. We can't wait to share our show with Fringe audiences!"
'A Day in the Life of You' is a delightful and enchanting show for children and adults alike and is not to be missed during Sydney Fringe 2019.
