Families' Concert

The stories of Babar the Little Elephant and The Firebird. Join us for some interactive musical storytelling as two of our wonderfully talented pianists combine forces with local storytellers, dancers & animators to bring to life the magical stories of ‘Babar the Little elephant’ and ‘The Firebird’. In what will be a feast of sight and sound prepare to be enchanted by these two classics. The Firebird is a strange and wonderful tale of good and evil, enchantments, love and malice. Babar the Little Elephant is a dramatic tale of one little elephant’s journey from despair to hope and triumph with lots of wild adventures along the way. This collaborative work involves members of TheatreiNQ, Townsville’s Full Throttle Theatre and Ann Roberts School of Dance.
