WINGS2FLY JUNIOR THEATRE

Wings2Fly Junior is an informal introduction to theatre, suitable for young actors in years 1-5.

Students will be separated into small groups on the first morning (keeping friends together). Each group will have their own director and together they will rehearse and learn a short play in only 3 days, ready to perform on the stage to family and friends on the final evening. There will also be time for drama games and activities over the workshop.

This performance will include basic costumes, set, props and the most important thing – lights – fully supported by Wings2FlyTheatre’s highly regarded industry professionals. No prior experience necessary. Perfectly suited to young theatre enthusiasts, with opportunities to also build self esteem, make new friends, improve reading skills and have a lot of fun along the way!

Limited places available – register via the Wings2Fly Theatre website.

Woodhouse Activity Centre

Spring is a pretty magical time at Woodhouse.

After the cold winter, the plants and trees start to blossom and flower and some new faces start to appear as many fury residents have their babies.

The cool (generally dryer) nights are prime for sitting around a campfire and roasting some marshmallows and the milder weather makes for some ideal camping conditions too!

Check out this season’s hottest activities and events – and what makes them so special in Spring…

School Holidays UNPLUGGED: Action-packed Day Camps for 5-13 year olds | 27 September – 8 October

Cool enough to cosy up around a campfire, warm enough to whiz down a grassy hill on a giant ice-block, awesome enough to book in more than one day!

SPRING BREAK: Labour Day Weekend Family Camping Party | 1, 2 & 3 October

Featuring Outdoor Cinema and Twilight Tube Sliding

DAY ADVENTURES: Just 10 minutes up the S.E. Freeway | 9-5pm, 7 days!

Idyllic temperatures for outdoor adventures means you can be active without working up too much of a sweat. Need to warm up? Take a walk up Challenge Hill (or drag Tube up the Tube Slide return)!
