drama workshops

We are very excited to be returning to the Australian Museum for some school holiday fun this Summer. Young dramatists, aged 5 – 8 years, will be taken on a journey of identity, self-belief, and belonging… through the eyes of an emu.

Workshopping the book Edward the Emu by Sheena Knowles and Rod Clement, participants will work collaboratively to create their own characters and scenes, combining physical movement, improvisation, vocal activities, and creation of a storyline. Monkey Baa is going on an excursion… join us for a rich, engaging workshop session at the Australian Museum!

Other highlights:

  • A reading of Edward the Emu
  • A short tour with First Nations staff of the Australian Museum, exploring the importance of the emu in First Nations cultures
  • Meet the star of next year’s new Monkey Baa show… Edward, and have a photo with him
