Carrousel Theatre Bilingual Puppetry Show

Carrousel Theatre is a puppetry theatre company based in Melbourne. It originated in Paris and has been performing in Australia since 2000. Their objective is to encourage the study of languages via the medium of puppetry. The shows are especially crafted for school students learning a new language. The stories are based on original tales that are adapted for puppetry. The traditional characters and stories give the students an opportunity to enjoy and understand the diversity of cultures around the world. THS students will experience an interactive performance, with the puppets asking questions in Japanese or asking the students to repeat words/ sentences after them in Japanese. Students will gain the confidence to use Japanese in a group setting along with developing their vocabulary in the lead up to the play.
