Riverside Theatres' SPOT ON Children's Festival presents The Story Collective's

Curious Jac

Venue Raffertys Theatre
Dates 02 October - 03 October 2015

Performed by Lilli Pang

After sell-out seasons of Señor Rabbit last year, bilingual storyteller, Lilli Pang returns to Riverside Theatres with a newly devised show, Curious Jac which will captivate and enthral the young and young at heart!

Jac is full of questions. She is extremely curious and asks about everything around her, but answers only lead to more questions! She wants to know how mountains were made, what can the trees see, how do we smile, why is the moon so large when it rises, why does the turtle have cracks on its back?

But what happens when Jac asks one question too many?

Come on this magical adventure with Jac as she travels the continents and discovers the answers to her questions through the magic of music and storytelling.

Performed in English with some Spanish, Hindi and Twi language.

Recommendation: Ages 4 – 9 years

Dates & Times:
Friday 2 October 10:30am & 1pm
Saturday 3 October 1pm (RELAXED PERFORMANCE)

Family of 4 passes are available. Additional family tickets can be purchased with this.

Please note, children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian at all times, including performances and workshops. Riverside Theatres is not responsible for the supervision of children.

Special relaxed performances of Mr Snot Bottom’s Stinky, Silly Show and Curious Jac will be held for children with additional needs, or anyone who might benefit from a more relaxed atmosphere. Modifications to this performance include the option to enter the performance space early, house lights being kept on during the performance, an introduction by the performers to aid with comprehension and sudden loud noises or lighting states reduced or removed. Patrons will be welcome to come and go as needed. Children will also be able to meet the performers before the performance begins to ensure they are comfortable and relaxed during the show. A social story for each performance is available to download from our website.
