The Fish That Wanted To Fly

Concert or Performance

13 Jan 2022 to 14 Jan 2022 Once Only Event

Did you ever dream of doing something that seemed impossible?

The Fish That Wanted to Fly is about having the courage to pursue something even if it seems likely you will never reach it. In our story we meet a little Fish whose lagoon is drying up. All the other fish have left, and she wants to learn how to fly so she can see them again. Her friend, a hermit crab named Karramoko, sits by a stormwater drain and tells her it will never happen. She meets a Kingfisher who helps her and encourages her to keep trying. It’s not until she meets a Cormorant, who offers to take her up into the sky that she flies for the first time. But will she make it back okay? The tale is set in a mangrove swamp, and is about friendship, resilience and sustainability.

Sessions for this delightful family friendly puppet performance will be held at 10.00am and 1.30pm on Thursday 13 January and Friday 14 January 2022.

Plus puppeteer Jenny Ellis will give two workshops so you can create and perform with your own puppet at 11.30am on Thursday 13 January or Friday 14 January 2022!

A wonderful holiday event to remember for anyone visiting Merimbula this summer.
