Monkey Baa tours a Teaching Artist alongside its major touring work each year. This artist travels into schools to run drama-based workshops exploring the production the students then see at their local theatre.

This hugely successful program maximizes the access all students have to quality arts learning and theatre experiences, regardless of where they live.

Also, Monkey Baa is able to provide bespoke drama programs for students. Contact us for further information.

A joyous workshop for early primary students to explore this beloved book through drama.

Using active learning, puppetry and practical activities, this is a wonderful pre-show preparation or stand-alone workshop experience.

Where the Streets Had a Name

$350+GST for up to 30 students
Suitable for Stages 5&6 (Preliminary & HSC)
Using Randa Abdel-Fattah’s book as a starting point, this session explores the power of personal story. Students are invited to share their own stories of family and belonging, and hear those of the Monkey Baa teaching artist. Drama-based activities are used to explore crafting a story, then students explore scenes from Eva Di Cesare’s play script adapted from the book. This is a profound and meaningful workshop experience. Prior knowledge of the novel is not necessary.
