Free Theatre Workshops for Mount Isa Kids at “KoalaRumba” Show

Mount Isa children will get a chance to take part in free theatre and performance workshops and even be involved in a live, on-stage performance when Blue Gum Farm TV brings “KoalaRumba” to the Civic Centre later this month, thanks to the Mount Isa City Library.


Designed for children aged six months to 11 years, this is a free, fun and interactive show about life in the Australian bush and will be touring across Queensland this month, visiting towns including Cloncurry, Normanton, Karumba, Longreach and Winton.


Tailored especially for children in rural and remote areas, “KoalaRumba” celebrates the everyday lives of Australia’s “bush kids” and champions the work of their farming families.


With a vibrant cast of professional entertainers, beautiful songs, a quirky script and lovable characters, “KoalaRumba” uses song and dance to take the audience on an imaginative and interactive journey of rural Australia.


It will be held at the Civic Centre on Friday, April 12.


Theatre workshops will be offered to local children aged five to 16.


On completion of the workshops, the participating children will be invited to join the cast on stage and be part of the show. Previous theatre or dance training is not necessary, and all levels of ability are welcome.


There is no need to book. Registrations will open at 9am, with the junior and senior theatre workshops to begin shortly after, while the performance workshop for children who would like to take part in the show will be held at 9.45am. The “KoalaRumba” show itself will be held at 11.30am.


Children taking part are asked to bring morning tea and a water bottle with them, and come dressed in a “farmer’s outfit” (jeans, long-sleeved shirt and a hat) if they would like to take part in the show. If they have previous dance experience, they are also encouraged to bring their dance shoes.

For more information please call the Mount Isa City Library on 4747 3350 or the Civic Centre on 4747 3300.
