It’s turning 50, but Play School has the partying energy of a five-year-old full of lolly snakes and birthday cake. The second week of celebrations is almost through, and the festivities are going strong. Tomorrow we’re laughing with Magda Szubanski in the morning, and dancing with Tim Omaji before dinner.
Magda Szubanksi might prove to be a wild card on the 8am show on 14 July, 2016. She’s doing classic Mother Goose with the tale of Mother Hubbard and her poor hungry dog. We’re sure she’ll be in good comedic form for the benefit of the grown-ups. If John Hamblin can slip in a few hilarious moments, why not Magda?
Hip hop artist Tim Omaji will be on at 5pm as part of the Play School Celebrity Covers mini episodes.
Besides recording two albums, and winning ARIAs and Logies, Tim has made the reality talent show rounds competing on Australia’s Got Talent and So You Think You Can Dance Australia. We love him best for his hip hop dance moves.
For Play School, he’ll be performing Rhythm, and with a name like that, there’s sure to be an opportunity to break out some incredible dance moves. This man has springs for legs. True story.
Stay tuned every afternoon this week as Babyology reports on what celebrities are starring next or check out the full program guide. Also check out the program’s official birthday launch on 18 July 2016 at 6:30pm with a collection of mini episodes.
