Now touring: Victorian secondary schools offered chance to see unique play explaining climate change
Calling all teachers - are you looking for a way to engage your students about what climate change is, its challenges and how it impacts our community?
Theatre show Ella’s Choice is now touring schools across Victoria and is available to visit secondary schools in terms 3 and 4 in 2016. The performance is available to government schools at no cost.
Performed by three professional actors, the play introduces students to the topic of climate change, creatively explaining how young people can help minimise the impacts of global warming.
The show follows the story of Ella who lives on a dairy farm with her Dad. The farm is going backwards after years of drought and her Dad isn't coping. Then Ella's nan arrives at the door, fleeing a bushfire that threatens to engulf her home. Woven through the play are stories of environmental change in Tuvalu, Bangladesh’s and East Africa.
The play links with the Australian Science curriculum, Levels 9 and 10 - Science Understanding/Earth and space sciences. Curriculum linked classroom resources are provided.
Preview a short show-reel, below.
Ella’s Choice toured to over 1000 Victorian students in rural and metropolitan secondary schools. Feedback from teachers included
“Such an engaging and relevant play for students to view”
“ It is plays and art like this that may really effect change in the world”
