TWINKLE & THE MOON

Twinkle and the Moon is an interactive, theatre and literacy experience

for children aged 2 - 7 years and their families.

The show was originally commissioned by the First 5 Forever Program and

Gold Coast City Libraries to encourage a love of reading and confidence in imaginative play.

Snuggled into their blanket cubby house, Nadia and Twinkle always share a book together before nap time. Today they’re reading a book about a rocket ship! But...when the book is finished

and it’s time for bed…Twinkle wants to play a game instead!

Twinkle is convinced the moon is made of cheese and he wants to take a bite. With a little help from the ’magic nap sack', Twinkle and Nadia use the power of imagination to blast off on an adventure full of sing-a-long songs, make believe and fantastical storytelling.

Join Twinkle in one small step for mouse-kind … and one giant leap of the imagination.

Numbers limited to 30 children - maximum.

more about
Nadia's new book!

"Nadia’s engaging storytelling and songs brought such immediate
warmth and joy to the room and had the children and adults alike transfixed.
The story of Twinkle the mouse eventually getting to sleep after an epic space odyssey was both sentimental and perfectly lighthearted with lots of laughs and learning too. We LOVED it."

ABOUT

Have you every smiled at a crocodile? Munched on mango with a bandicoot? Or boogaloo-ed with a brolga?!!!

Sonic Safari is a rollicking, whimsical and joyous interactive classical music concert for the very young and the young at heart. 

Featuring masterful storytelling and narration by award-winning children’s theatre artist Nadia Sunde alongside a ‘glorious’ ensemble of Queensland classical musicians, Sonic Safari celebrates our animal world and introduces instruments of the orchestra through a carefully curated collection of Australian composed pieces, classical favourites and selections from Saint-Saëns’ ‘Carnival of the Animals’. 

 

This interactive 50 minute musical adventure includes all new (and often hilarious) verses to the ‘Carnival of the Animal’s, written by Nadia Sunde especially for Australian audiences. 

 

Be prepared to clap, stamp, honk, quack and sing along!

 

Original concept and musical direction by Louise King

Arrangements by Paul Hankinson.

No limit to audience numbers.

PERFORMANCE REVIEW

Sunshine Coast Chamber Music Festival 2021

"Buderim’s War Memorial Hall was home to a much-anticipated children’s concert for the very young. Entitled Sonic Safari, the splendid narrator and singer Nadia Sunde took the children on a glorious ride through the animal world, as she visually illustrated songs, inviting audience participation while adding asides for adults. It worked perfectly. The glorious ensemble of Festival musicians introduced the wonders of their individual instruments through selections from Saint-Saëns The Carnival of the Animals and other songs to an enchanted young audience. This was a joyous, fun and beautifully crafted event."
