For every Monkey Baa production, we run pre-show drama-based workshops around the country to prepare students to see the performance at their local theatre.
We work closely with our presenting venues to enhance engagement in local communities.
Monkey Baa’s innovative National Teaching Artist Tour took off in 2014 and in 2019 alone we ran over 400 workshops nationally with more than 10,000 students.
In our workshops, students learn about Monkey Baa and how the production made its journey from picture book to the stage while exploring the themes and worlds of the play. The workshops provide an enriching experience for students, building excitement and anticipation for their upcoming trip to the theatre and offering opportunities for professional learning for teachers.
We work closely with our presenting venues all over Australia to enhance engagement in local communities and the connection between Education and the Arts.
We also believe that theatre is for everyone, no matter where you live. Young people living in small country towns and big bustling cities should all be able to access theatre and be given the same opportunities to participate in arts learning. Monkey Baa’s National Teaching Artist Workshop Tour, in conjunction with our touring productions, does just that.
Details of our Edward the Emu National tour are available here.

Each venue independently hosts our production and manages its own promotion
and ticketing for the show.
