Monday Morning Minis
THE CLOWN IS SAD?
Created by Ali Gordon and Alicia Gonzalez

Meet the Clown. She has lost her favourite toy. Can you help her? Or did you hide it from her? In this performance style game, very young audiences will play with the Clown and her assistants to expand their developing understanding of empathy and what it is to have a thought.

Both hilarious and deeply moving, audiences will journey with the Clown to dive inside of ourselves into where feelings are made and thoughts are born.

Can you make a clown laugh?

“Fabulous!!!! So much fun!” – Ella and Flora’s Mum (Sydney)
“They want to watch it again!” – Raph and Robyn’s Dad (Sydney)

Enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and some biscuits before the performance from 9:30am and some games and colouring in for the kids! 


It’s never too early to introduce your kids to the magic of theatre!

Especially for ages 2 – 6, our Monday Morning Minis Series will start your week with a smile. Educational as well as fun, bring a group from your pre-school, playgroup or family
