Please join us - make puppets, be a puppeteer, perform in the show, or just come and watch!
The Shorebird Quest is a spectacular theatre experience celebrating the migratory shorebirds of Roebuck Bay. The finale performance is May 4th, but free giant puppet making workshops are starting soon!
This free family event will feature giant illuminated puppets, original music performed by local musicians and school choirs, dance and storytelling. Co-created by Theatre Kimberley, the Parks and Wildlife Yawuru Rangers and Country Managers and the Broome community, this musical theatre show will light up the shores of Roebuck Bay with a fusion of art, science and rollicking fun.
But for now... You are invited to be part of giant puppetry workshops in the lead up to the finale performance on May 4th.
LEARN HOW TO MAKE giant PUPPETS!
Workshops will run daily starting Tuesday, March 26th, and continuing until May 3rd. Participants are welcome to drop-in and work with our professional artist team at a time that suits them. Location is 7 Lucas Street, Broome. Participants must be 12 years of age or older for this activity.
Would you like to be involved, but not as a puppet-maker? We are also seeking volunteers to help on the show (4 May).
You may express your interest to participate in puppet-making or in other ways, by commenting on our Facebook event page:
