Concerts & Performances Kids Activities Melbourne
The great thing about Melbourne's outdoor festivals is that everyone can enjoy them. At outdoor concerts, grown ups can enjoy being outdoors on a lovely day or evening, relaxing, even if the music is for kids. And, generally, kids will put up with an adult performance much better if they can run around, dance, play and picnic while you enjoy a little grown up entertainment for once. Of course it's fun to visit the indoorsy entertainment at Venues too!
Family shows are just as fun as the concerts you may remember from your pre-parenting days but the music isn't as loud, the settings are sometimes more intimate with the children nestled around the performer and there is nothing cuter than watching the littlies get up and groove to the music.
Adapted from the best-selling book, The Very Cranky Bear, written and illustrated by Nick Bland Flamboyent friends Zebra, Lion and Moose each think they know how to solve the Bear’s crankiness but their shenanigans just make him even crankier!
It takes a humble and empathetic Sheep with an open heart and listening ear to solve the Bear’s woes. Cranky Bear is a rollicking cabaret-style show by Patch Theatre Company packed with music, laughter and mayhem.
Based on Judith Kerr's beloved children's book that has sold over 4 million copies worldwide, the Australian premiere of The Tiger Who Came to Tea brings to life the story of little Sophie and a big, hungry tiger in a fun-filled child-friendly musical.
The Tiger Who Came to Tea is presented by Arts Centre Melbourne at the Playhouse theatre from Tuesday, 2 January to Sunday, 18 January.
