 "Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere." – Carl Sagan

Imagination takes us to realities that were never explored, and in the 1920 - 50's Radio plays were the number one form of entertainment. In this retro interactive performance workshop, a short one man show will performed before students get to play small roles, help out with sound effects or just be the studio audience, as they bring an episode of TREASURE ISLAND to life.

Ages 6 - 12+

Run Time: 60min

"The children absolutely loved the incursion and really enjoyed the dramatic play. The props really set the scene and inspired the children to participate. Some of our particularly drama-loving children really enjoyed having an outlet to express their creativity."-Assisi Catholic College Outside School Hours Care

"The look of wonder on the children’s faces was amazing to observe, they enjoyed the different sounds and have been heard creating their own sounds after the performance was over and days later. I felt Nathan’s performances really opened up their little minds to the wonders that are around them and to explore their imagination."
