Something different - an exciting writing challenge working with theatre-in-education specialist Therase Neve of Blue Whale Theatre.
Therase recently engaged me to write lyrics for a song for one of her early years shows, 'Staying healthy with Sailor Sam.' Blue Whale Theatre was established by actor and theatre in education specialist Therase Neve, to provide exciting and engaging dramatic experiences for children in Early Years and Primary schools. Therase has written and developed six shows - four early years, and two specialist plays, 'A Bright Light in the Darkness’, telling the story of Catherine McAuley, founder of the Sisters of Mercy, and 'Mary - A Story of Courage', the story of Saint Mary MacKillop.
Therase is proud to be touring these shows to schools both here and in New Zealand with her very talented cast!
Sam loves to eat 5 fruit and veg a day, and exercises every day to keep both mind and body happy and healthy! Children help Sailor Sam recognise ‘good foods’ from ‘not so good foods’ , learn about sun safety and dental hygiene, and join in with our jolly song to climb the riggings, scrub the decks, and hoist the flags on this fun interactive, sailing adventure!
I also had fun creating Blue Whale Theatre's website videos via my 'real job' with Thaumaturgy Post Production.
Thanks Therase for this wonderful opportunity.
The tune will be stuck in my head for a long time!
