As a keen opera and theatre goer, the end of each year brings a wonderful feeling of anticipation – what will be on the program for the following year? That same excitement applies to the littlest theatre goers who have the opportunity to visit the Sydney Opera House.
Sydney Opera House has just announced the 2012 Kids at the House season, a year-long program of theatre, music, multi-media, dance and creative play for children aged two to fifteen years and there are lots of treats to look forward to.
There are sixteen performances planned for 2012 including the popular Babies Proms shows for young audiences aged two to five, Angelina Ballerina performed by the Royal New Zealand Ballet and White, a production designed as an introduction to theatre for two to four year olds. Older children will have the opportunity to experience interactive theatre with an exciting ‘choose your own adventure’ show called Escape from Peligro Island where the audience are given controllers to determine the path the show will take.
As well as theatre, the 2012 Kids at the House season includes the Sydney Symphony Family Classics at the Concert Hall and the return of the immensely popular Little Big Shots Film Festival, featuring brand new films, many of which are made for children by children.
In 2012, Sydney Opera House’s access program includes autism-friendly performances and pre-show sensory touch tours of the stage prior to a show for young people who are blind and vision-impaired.
