“The children were able to follow the story and offer their ideas and were engaged throughout the show - educators as well! We kept expecting the 3 bears to walk through the door! The whole show was great! Very worthwhile. After the show was over one of our 3 year olds asked to ‘see the movie again’ and the next day another asked if Goldilocks was coming again today. Thank you for putting on such a wonderful show, it certainly made an impact on the children.” Explore and Develop Wamberal, Central Coast. 2014.

“The children were surprised and intrigued to see Goldilocks walk through the door at Preschool! the surprise and delight on their faces was priceless! The show was engaging and interactive, allowing the children to participate in dance, counting and singing. Overall the show was extremely professional and covered a wide range of educational information/experiences. The children loved the follow up postcard and are still talking about the show weeks later! Thank you again Blue Whale Theatre."

"Dear Therase What a wonderful morning that was! We loved the way the story was put across to the children in a fun and entertaining way, getting across some very important messages to the children. The simplicity of the performance was what stood out as most impressive and your sweet singing voice!! That was such a delight to listen to. The children would have loved to hear you sing a little more! Thank you."

The show catered for all our children from 1 to - 6 years old. Thank you Blue Whale Theatre, nothing but positive comments from our parents too! We will definitely be getting Blue Whale Theatre back to Gymbaroo Sydney West soon." Kim Hall, Gymbaroo, Penrith, Sydney West, July 2017
Learning about personal safety in a fairytale experience
Actively engaging with the story, the children are invited to help the character to do the right thing and make the right choices. “Was that the right thing to do? What should ‘Goldilocks’ have done??” Helping the character to make the right choices when ethical issues are raised, helps the children to connect and contribute to their world in a positive way.
