Intergenerational Puppet Show to Bring Children and Seniors Together

Children and seniors from Warrumbungle Shire will come together for an intergenerational puppet show on Friday 28 July 2023. The show, titled A Little Bit of Blue, will be presented by Little Wing Puppets.

“Little Wing Puppets are bringing their interactive environmental detective story ‘A Little Bit of Blue’ to share with the Warrumbungle community,” said Warrumbungle Shire Council Mayor, Councillor Ambrose Doolan. “As well as unravelling a mystery, it involves learning about the unique habits of an extraordinary Australian creature, the bowerbird, and their fascination with the colour blue.”

There will be two shows at the Coonabarabran Town Hall on Friday 28 July at 10:00am and 12:00pm, with the earlier show bringing together our youngest and oldest community members with morning tea also on offer. 

“We are encouraging everyone to wear blue or to dress up as a detective and help solve the case,” Cr Doolan explained.

The tour is a joint initiative between Warrumbungle Children’s Services and Warrumbungle Community Care in partnership with Orana Arts.

Jenny Ellis, Artistic Director of Little Wing Puppets, said, “We are thrilled to be coming to the Warrumbungle Region. We believe that young people deserve equal access to the arts, wherever they live. We have demonstrated that with over 16 years on the road, taking shows to some of Australia’s most remote communities. We know that we can help shape young people’s lives by igniting their imaginations. In a time when there is so much time spent on screens, the simplicity of puppet theatre still retains a sense of magic. It’s amazing to hear a room full of children gasping and exploding into laughter over the antics of a puppet on stage. It’s still able to captivate their imaginations.”

“This detective show told with puppetry is a great way to bring people of all ages together. It’s a fun and interactive way to share a story and learn from each other,” said Cr Doolan.
