HOT: The Wizard of Oz, Altona City Theatre, 115 Civic Parade, Altona

The Wizard of Oz is a classic children’s book by Frank Baum and a family film made famous by Judy Garland as Dorothy. This April The Wizard of Oz stage show is coming to Victoria and it’s a pantomime-style, pharm interactive fun re-telling of the story. Lady AB went along to the Altona City Theatre […]

Melbourne Events and Activities for Families and Kids – April 2014

I’m experimenting with a new weekly blog post – it’ll be a listicle of family and kid-friendly events happening around Melbourne suitable for under 5s (as my kids are 3 years old and 1 year old). I figured since I keep a list of events for my own reference I might as well share my […]

HOT: Play School Live in Concert 2014, Prince of Bears, The Substation, 1 Market St, Newport

  Every toddler I know is a big fan of Play School, the longest running children’s television show in Australia. It’s so old that even I remember watching Play School as a child :–) What’s even better is when Play School comes to life and the Play School concerts come town. Like the TV shows, the live shows […]

HOT: Angelina Ballerina The Mousical, Arts Centre Melbourne, 100 St Kilda Rd, Melbourne

Lady AB is an Angelina Ballerina’s fangirl #1. Ever since she received her first Angelina Ballerina book we have had ceaseless AB – from impromptu ballet recitals to an Angelina Ballerina birthday celebration to watching the film at one of Lady AB’s first cinema outings. So there was no way we were going to miss Angelina […]

HOT: Rain by Drop Bear Theatre, Artplay, Birrarung Marr, Melbourne

‘Rain’ is a collaboration between Drop Bear Theatre (resident artists at Artplay for 2013), The Seam and cellist Edwina Cordingley who have worked together to create a magical, multi-sensory space just for babies.  When you first entered the room was completely dark so there was a transition area of falling rain-like string to get the babies […]

HOT: I Wanna Be a Mermaid, Coco’s Lunch, Artplay, Birrarung Marr, Melbourne

Coco’s Lunch are an a capella female singing group that have been together for almost 15 years. They recently performed songs from their children’s EP ‘I Wanna be a Mermaid‘ at ArtPlay and it was a really enjoyable concert experience. Most of the songs had a sea theme covering surfing, sea animals, mermaids and pirates. The […]

HOT: Alice in Wonderland, Melbourne Fringe Festival, Theatre Husk, 161a Heidelberg Rd, Northcote

  I have to admit that I have low expectations about ‘family’ or ‘kids’ entertainment – it can be a bit amateur hour as kids will generally be happy with a bit of song and dance. Well, you needn’t worry with this winning and witty adaptation of Alice in Wonderland as part of the Kids […]
