What If – July School Holiday Workshops for Ages 8 – 12

Winter is setting in but that doesn’t mean young people’s minds and bodies need to slow down. Join Barking Gecko Theatre Company from 10 -12 July for two fun workshops that will stretch the imaginations and the hamstrings of everyone who takes part.


What if?

Who: For kids aged 8 – 12
When: 9am – 3pm, 10 – 12 July, 2017
Where: Subiaco Arts Centre
Cost: $360 or $310 with early bird special**

Get ready to bend your mind and move your body! Barking Gecko will be asking all the big questions in this fun filled three days of acting and science!

  • If your life was a pizza, what would the slices represent?
  • If the earth were a cricket ball what would the other planets be?
  • And just what is the most awesome thing invented in the last 1000 years?

David J Smith’s award-winning book If… will be the launchpad for our young explorers on their journey through our wonderful universe. Are you ready for an explosion of fun?

The possibilities are limitless!

“The kids that were involved really got into it and one little boy in particular loved it, he said “I wish I could do that every day!” – BGTC Specialist Workshop Teacher
