The Owl’s Apprentice & Shadow Puppet Workshop

January 18 10:30 am - 2:00 pm

The Owl’s Apprentice follows a young owl named Poot Poot, who has been sent to Owl School to learn to become wise. He’s not like the other owls; he doesn’t know how to fly. He misses his family. He just wants to go home. Poot Poot knows the only way he can go home is by gaining “wisdom” but he doesn’t even know what that is.

The Owl’s Apprentice is an interactive solo show created by Jenny Ellis using a combination of shadow puppetry, hand puppetry and story-telling. The show is about our unique Australian animals as well as drawing on the field of applied ethics and the 16 Habits of Mind developed by Professor Art Costa. The Owl’s Apprentice poses questions with the aim of extending young minds.

A shadow puppet workshop will take place after the show. The workshop is $20 per participant and is suitable for ages 6+. Students will leave the workshop with their own shadow puppet and the skills to develop their own show. Book tickets here.
