Twinkle and the Moon

Twinkle and the Moon

September 17, 2022 9:30 am - September 21, 2022

Twinkle and the Moon is an interactive, theatre and literacy experience for children aged 2 - 7 years and their families.

The show was originally commissioned by the First 5 Forever Program and Gold Coast City Libraries in 2021 to encourage a love of reading and confidence in imaginative play.

Snuggled into their blanket cubby house, Nadia and Twinkle always share a book together before nap time. Today they’re reading a book about a rocket ship! But...when the book is finished and it’s time for bed…Twinkle wants to play a game instead!

Twinkle is convinced the moon is made of cheese and he wants to take a bite. With a little help from the ’magic nap sack', Twinkle and Nadia use the power of imagination to blast off on an adventure full of sing-a-long songs, make believe and fantastical storytelling.

Join Twinkle in one small step for mouse-kind…and one giant leap of the imagination.

*Nadia’s newest book ’Twinkle Just Won’t Go To Bed’ is due for release in December 2021.

"Nadia’s engaging storytelling and songs brought such immediate warmth and joy to the room and had the children and adults alike transfixed. The story of Twinkle the mouse eventually getting to sleep after an epic space odyssey was both sentimental and perfectly lighthearted with lots of laughs and learning too. We LOVED it." - A Davidson-Farnworth, Elanora Library, 2021
