The Treasure of Captain Curlylocks

Red Chair and acclaimed children's songwriter and comic actress Nadia Sunde present a brand new musical comedy for 3 - 8 year olds and their families.

When the treasure chest of Captain Curlylocks washes up on Tugun Beach, Nadia takes a careful peek inside ... but what is this! Instead of rubies and pearls, Captain Curlylocks has collected a hotch-potch of the funny and fantastical, weird and wonderful! Inspired by these whimsical treasures, Nadia and her audience set sail on a hilarious and fun-filled adventure to a land where the imagination runs free.

The Treasure of Captain Curlylocks combines comedy, music, puppetry and audience participation. Suitable for children aged 3 - 8 and their families.

Nadia Sunde is an internationally and nationally awarded children’s songwriter, a published children’s author and a sublime comedienne/entertainer for children and families.

Featuring original music by Nadia Sunde. Represented by Red Chair Management.

This production of The Treasure of Captain Curlylocks was originally commissioned and produced by Bleach* Festival 2014

Nadia & The Blue Flamingo

Children and families will be entertained and musically inspired by Nadia Sunde in her new show, Nadia & The Blue Flamingo.

A singing south wind flutters into town... weaving a playful dance around Nadiaʼs washing line and filling the air with magic and song. With a dash of imagination, a hint of mayhem and a basket full of hope, Nadia and her audience discover true friends can sometimes be found right under your toes...

“It was important for me to craft a theatre show celebrating the wonder of domestic family life. We remember that, just like the candles on a birthday cake, a wee puff of wind holds enough magic to make anything possible. Children are inherently joyful beings and recognise the magic in everyday moments. Thatʼs how they charm us into getting up at 5am to cook their porridge and we get to enjoy a sunrise we otherwise would have missed!” said Nadia.

Nadia & The Blue Flamingo combines puppetry, music, comedy and audience participation in an engaging and heartfelt tale of friendship. Suitable for children aged 3 - 8 and their families. Nadia Sunde is an internationally awarded childrenʼs songwriter, a published childrenʼs author and a sublime entertainer for children and families. She has written Nadia & the Blue Flamingo with Jeff Licence, early childhood teacher, media education specialist, author and filmmaker.

Nadia & The Blue Flamingo premiered at MusicPlay Children's Festival - Melbourne Recital Centre - 20 January 2011.

Nadia & The Swing Set

Nadia's Brisbane-based ensemble, Nadia Sunde & The Swing Set, play real music for kids and grown-ups who want to enjoy something a little more rootsy and organic.

Stoking The Fire - CD

This album is sure to capture the heart of its audience time and time again.
