We are one of just four regional WA communities that have been selected to host Barking Gecko Theatre’s ‘Cicada Experience’ this coming school holidays!

This is a 4-day drama-based workshop program for children aged 7–11 years and is led by Barking Gecko Teaching Artists, details as follows:

  • Tuesday 5 – Friday 8 October from 10am–4pm each day. Kids must attend all 4 days as they will be working towards a short performance as part of the experience.
  • Mingenew Rec Centre
  • $40 per child
  • Registration is essential via There are only 20 places available so get in quick!
The workshop is inspired by Shaun Tan’s book ‘Cicada’, which centres around themes of belonging, alienation, freedom, prejudice, self-expression and transformation. Participants will be engaged in drama processes and techniques to dive into the unknown to discover new ideas, celebrate the unusual, and get curious about the endless possibilities of creating worlds, exploring characters and discovering stories. The workshops will conclude with participants presenting a small showing to parents and families at the end of the four days.
This is a rare and exciting opportunity and open to 7–11-year-olds from the Midwest!
