Wimmera schools invited to Robot Song

Robot Song

Schools across the region have an invitation to attend a special student performance of the play Robot Song at Ararat Town Hall this month.
Robot Song is on the 2019 Victorian Certificate of Education drama syllabus and is aimed at children aged eight and above.
The play is based on writer director Jolyon James’ experience parenting a child on the autism spectrum.
Ararat Rural City Council chief executive Tim Harrison said Robot Song was an honest, intensely funny and often unconventional show about how we support, foster and celebrate difference in children ‘in the face of an increasingly rigid and homogenised world’.
Robot Song is based on joy and hope and is for any child who has ever felt isolated or pushed to the margins and any parent desperate for tools to help.
The show employs cutting-edge digital technology, startling animatronics and an original musical score.
The play tells the story of 11-year-old Juniper May, who receives a petition signed by her entire class stating that she is ‘the most hated person in the school’.
Juniper May’s life is thrown into complete meltdown – she stops eating, she refuses to return to school and her parents become increasingly desperate.
Finally, after exhausting all other avenues, her parents resort to the only thing they have left – a giant singing robot.
Robot Song illustrates the profound, transformative nature of creativity that when combined with unconditional love, becomes an unstoppable force.
For Juniper May, creativity opens doors into places she never knew existed allowing her, for the first time, to be defined on her own terms.
Robot Song will play at 11am on May 27, and is open to school groups only. Tickets are $12 per student.
People seeking more information or to book can visit website or call the box office on 5355 0900.
