Carrousel Theatre is a puppetry theatre company based in Melbourne. It originated in Paris and has been performing in Australia since 1998. Our objective is to encourage and promote the study of French, Italian and German languages via the medium of puppetry. We also offer some shows in Spanish and Indonesian.
Class Resources Class preparation material can simply be downloaded from our site. These resources are provided to help teachers and students to get the most out of our shows.
Traditional Craft The shows are especially crafted for school students learning a new language. The stories are based on original tales that we adapt for puppetry. Our traditional characters and stories give the students an opportunity to enjoy and understand the diversity of cultures around the world.
What do we need We need three student desks, access to a power point and a white board or dividing screen.
