Ella s ChoiceTouring 2016: 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.SEAM logo text
