Regional Schools Tour

Go For 2&5 Regional Schools Touring Program 

Spare Parts has a long serving commitment to presenting highly imaginative, world-class productions that warm hearts and create infectious joy. We are excited to announce that in 2018, in partnership with Healthway (promoting the Go for 2&5 message), Horizon Power and the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, we will be delivering performances of Moominpappa at Sea and workshops to a huge number of schools in regional areas of Western Australia.

Students, teachers, children and adults are invited to explore puppetry with Spare Parts Puppet Theatre through both our performances and workshops as part of our 10-week regional schools tour.

This year our Go For 2&5 Regional Schools Tour will head to the Pilbara/Kimberly regions from 13 August – 7 September 2018 before heading to Wheatbelt, Peel, South-West & Great Southern regions from 15 October – 16 November, 2018.

What’s on tour?

Moominpappa at Sea – adapted from the book by acclaimed Finnish author Tove Jansson 

Moominpappa at Sea follows the plucky Moomin family as they begin an exciting new life on a rocky island far out to sea. Each family member embarks on an adventure – encountering the island’s mysterious inhabitants and discovering their own sense of place.

A solo performer brings to life the world of the Moomins with puppets and physical performance to create the imagery of the landscape. An atmospheric soundscape transports you to a windswept island – from the rumblings of the ocean to the squawks of sea birds.

Moominpappa at Sea encourages students to reflect on their personal and social freedoms, how they relate to others and the environment.
