4 Shows Suitable for Children of Different Ages
Wondering what to do with the children these school holidays?

Here are four suggestions of live shows you could take them to - I think it is important for children to grow up having seen live shows, so here are a few to entertain them as well as yourself!

This is a two in one show where there are two plays on for the price of one!

Popular Wiggles stars and married couple, Lachy Gillespie and Emma Watkins, will be touring together doing an exclusive "Emma and Lachy Tour" show across the country in 2018.

In the entertainment world, there's been Sonny and Cher, Fred and Ginger and more, and now pre-schoolers have their own dynamic duo - it's Emma and Lachy!

These two wonderful Wiggles will be singing and dancing and "toot-toot-chugger-chugging" their way from Wiggle Town to perform for children at their own live show.

Emma will start the show with some of the songs you've grown to love on her hit series Emma! Emma has a TV show and this will now come to life with lots of lovely singing and dancing.

Children will be excited by every moment of songs such as:

The Music Box Ballerina
Squeal with delight with This Little Piggy
I've Got My Glasses On
And many more

But wait, there's more! Of course, this show is double the fun as well, with the charming, lyrical lad, who children like a lot - Lachy, and he will ask you "What Song will We Do Today?" Lachy will also sing "Hello, Hello" to you, plus other songs from his TV show and album.

There is no stopping Lachy "horsing around" with his pink and purple pony pal, Ponso!

It's double the fun, double the laughs and double the dancing on the Emma and Lachy Tour - so what are you waiting for. Make sure you get your tickets now as the show is sure to be a sell out one.

This show will be on at Kalgoorlie, Albany, Bunbury, Mandurah, Rockingham, Fremantle, Balcatta, Byford, Subiaco, Joondalup and Morley.

From 13th to 25th February, 2018

Various times, though some show already sold out

You can make your bookings here.


Join Buddy and Tiny this February at Scitech's Toddlerfest!

You will see the amazing world of the Dinosaur Train as you go on a magical singing and dancing journey with Buddy and Tiny.

There will also be heaps of other things, including shows and fun and all this at Scitech.

Dinosaur Train embraces and celebrates the fascination that preschoolers have with both dinosaurs and trains, while it encourages children to think as they learn about life science, natural history and palaeontology.

Of course, this is based on the TV series on Buddy, the lovable preschool age Tyrannosaurus Rex, who together with his adoptive Pteranodon family, go on voyages through prehistoric jungles, swamps, volcanoes and oceans.

West Perth

From 10th to 26th February, 2018

You can get more information here.

This is presented by Lunar Circus, who have been based in WA for the past 25 years.

They have also been touring Internationally and hosting the annual Western Australian Circus Festival from its home in Karridale, Margaret River each January.

The story goes that three astronauts have been sent on a mission to collect rare and magical space rocks, but the astronauts cannot be found, and therefore the team need your help!

Join them as they "flip, tumble and fly through the air" for 45 minutes of circus, science and fun.

They have been playing to sold-out seasons in Melbourne Fringe Festival in 2016 and Adelaide Fringe Festival 2017 and now "Out of This World" is back to thrill families with synchronised swimming in Neptune's seas, hula-hooping of Saturn's rings and a crash-landing on Uranus.

This is an interactive family show which has a story, with storytelling, dance, magic, excellent circus acts including acrobatics, tumbling, foot juggling, unicycle-riding and skipping.
