A DAY IN THE LIFE OF YOU
A colourful and fun live children’s show featuring bursts of song, dance and storytelling for children aged 2 to 6
|Bridget A'Beckett, Julia Davis and Sharni Page|
As part of Melbourne Fringe 2019 Melbourne based children’s theatre group, Musical
Sprouts, will present their delightfully fun and interactive show. A Day in the Life of You runs from Friday September 27- Sunday September 29 within the stunning Wonderland Spiegeltent at The Paddock, Federation Square.
Featuring original songs, live instruments, dancing and lots of audience participation, this
clever and creative 50 minute show was written specifically for children ages 2 to 6. It 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 tickets are $18 and tickets for groups (4+) are $18.50.
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.
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. A Day in the Life of You was first presented in October 2018 with successful seasons taking place at a variety of venues.
In March 2019 short seasons took place at both Chapel off Chapel in Prahran and the Clocktower Centre in Moonee Ponds. From September 12-29 Melbourne Fringe transforms the city into a platform for every kind of artform imaginable, supporting over three thousand artists to present more than four hundred and fifty works in over one hundred and seventy venues to more than three hundred and sixty thousand people.
The open access festival champions cultural democracy – art for anyone. It celebrates freedom of artistic expression, taking voices from the margins and amplifying them across
By pushing boundaries and illuminating new thoughts and ideas, Melbourne Fringe transforms not only Melbourne’s places but its people too. Prior to the Melbourne Fringe season, A Day in the Life of You will be presented as part of Sydney Fringe 2019 at Actors Centre Australia in Leichardt from September 21-22 2019. A Day in the Life of You is a delightful and enchanting show for children and adults alike and is not to be missed.
