Heading to the Arts Centre is not the only way to get your fix of children's theatre. For maybe half the price - $18 per head – you can get some world class action in the South Eastern Suburbs.

Tivoli Theatre Children's Pantomimes holds shows every school holidays at St. John's Church in Malvern East. A secret holiday must-do for many a parent-in-the-know.

5-star performance

For something held in a church hall, Tivoli Theatre performances are remarkably professional. The 2015 Easter performance of Jack and the Beanstalk thrilled audiences with heel-kicking songs and rib-tickling one liners even adults found funny.

Props, sets and music are minimal (just a keyboardist, in fact) but the great script, talent and enthusiasm of the entire cast turned this traditional fairy tale into a truly entertaining performance.

Delectable intermission

Held in a church hall, where you sit around dining tables and chairs, the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. No one will give you the evil eye if your child is squirming in his or her seat or suddenly needs a snack. Speaking of snacks, look out for the delectable fairy bread and lemon drinks served at intermission.

 

Holiday must-do

Magic, music, song, dance – and fairy bread. Tivoli Theatre Pantomimes are reminiscent of an Enid Blyton storybook. Look out for other holiday performances throughout the year – Cinderalla and Pinnochio.
