Cerita Anak (Child's Story)

Drama on the high seas for a young audience.


‘This beautifully interactive tale is as touching and thought-provoking for the grown-ups, as it is inspiring for little minds.’

- KidTown Melbourne

We’re off on an adventure on the high seas and we need you to help bring this magical journey of discovery to life.

Youngsters and their adults will be swept away by puppetry, song, shadow imagery and sound in the delightful Cerita Anak (Child’s Story). Climb aboard and be rocked and rolled on the waves. Discover a world that bustles with fish and birds. Hear stories on the wind and in the currents of the water, and dive to the bottom of the sea to meet the creatures you helped create.

Everyone is a passenger and storyteller in this interactive, sensory adventure that shimmers with all the life of the ocean.

Cerita Anak (Child's Story) is designed for children aged 2 – 7 and their adults.
