Across the way at Capital E the fab crew are hosting some great events like the National Theatre for Children with two exciting shows: the world premiere of Hear to See; and the return of the delightful Songs of the Sea.

SONGS OF THE SEA Years 0 - 3
Tales from the stars to the seven seas...

A large conch shell whispers stories of the ocean to children playing by the sea. As florescent fish float under a black-light starry sky a mysterious man appears in a rickety boat to tell his fishy tale.The fabulously imaginative Songs of the Sea features the puppets of artist Sue Hill and music by Stephen Gallagher to weave together four stories of the deep, including how the children of Te Ika Rā, the lonely sunfish and Te Ika Marama the bright moonfish, got their rainbow colours.

HEAR TO SEE Years 4 - 9
See the extraordinary in the ordinary...
Follow a young boy as he leaves his gaming behind to chase the creatures and places he glimpses out of the corner of his eye. With a score by Richard Nunns and puppetry from Sydney-based ERTH this is gripping theatre for 8 - 14 year olds.
