Something on Saturday’s 2018 program offers children an exciting line-up of entertainment
Adelaide Festival Centre’s Something on Saturday program is 41 years young, and as fresh and enthusiastic as ever about offering the best entertainment for children aged 1-12 years!
This year’s program began on 14 April and will continue till 25 August and feature dance, music, magic, theatre, and books, all designed to get kids up and dancing, hands clapping and minds racing. All performances and workshops took place at the Adelaide Festival Centre.
Adelaide Festival Centre believes in investing in the future and vibrancy of Arts in South Australia and Something on Saturday is one of the Centre’s key platforms for engaging with children and families, reaching over 15,000 people annually with inspiring programs to create future generations of arts lovers.
Two popular children’s books feature in the two opening productions, beginning with Windmill Theatre Company’s production featuring everyone’s favourite explorer, Grug and the Rainbow, followed by the timber-terrific tale of Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton’s wildly popular The 78-Storey Treehouse.
Some of the other programs include: A brave and bold journey by the talented troupe from Cirkidz, who twisted, tumbled and turned into the shadows to prove there’s nothing to be afraid of in the dark!; the incredibubble scientific talents and silliness of Marty McBubble, blew your mind with a beaker-full of bubble rockets, volcanos, creepy crawlies and much more; Bollywood for beginners with Fusion Beats’ own Francesca McMillan to get your hips twisting, arms twirling, and brain whirling; off-the-wall mayhem and hilarious acrobatic hijinks from Tom Flanagan in Kaput!; Australian Classical Youth Ballet with favourite fairy tale Snow White, narrated by TV’s Brenton Whittle and Book Worm.
