FROM THE PROGRAM COORDINATOR
Tony Wilson’s remarkable book takes a classic nursery rhyme and overlays it with the important theme of perseverance in the face of a challenge. Pair that with Patch Theatre Company’s hip-hop style presentation and you have a production just bursting with learning potential. In English you can learn about rhyme, book adaptations, metaphors, plot and personification and in CAPA about hip-hop and rap music and displaying emotion through music. There are also wonderful life lessons about facing obstacles and self-worth. This production comes with an excellent set of teachers notes to support you in the classroom!
