Something on Saturday returns for 2014


Something on Saturday 2014Mums and Dads can give a sigh of relief as Adelaide Festival Centre and National Pharmacies proudly announce the highly anticipated 2014 Something on Saturday season for 2-10 year olds, which this year celebrates its 37th year. The program runs every Saturday from 26 April – 30 August.

Adelaide Festival Centre’s Something on Saturday program continues to delight and entertain thousands of people every year, providing an opportunity to beat the winter blues with many South Australian children enjoying their first theatrical experience through the program.

The 2014 program is as big as ever and covers everything from slapstick humour, mime, puppetry, percussion, live music, ventriloquism, storytelling, magic, magic and more magic, ballet, modern dance to rock n roll, swing and jive, African drums and dance, science, circus, juggling, comedy, games, bubbles, jazz, opera, cabaret and literature, theatre and Japanese story-telling. Kids are encouraged to sing, dance and have good old fashioned fun as Something on Saturday presents artists from New Zealand, Africa and Australia.

Tickets go on sale from 31 March.

Mixing up the start of this year’s Something on Saturday season is New Zealand company Theatre Beating’s The Magic Chicken who will deliver a slapstick treat of culinary chaos.

Further highlights from this year’s program include:

**A good dose of cabaret for kids as Adelaide Cabaret Festival artist Ali McGregor makes her Something on Saturday debut with Jazzamatazz, an hour of jazzy beats and pop classics performed by her jazz trio and accompanied by two dancers who’ll teach the kids some classic moves. Lullabies will come alive as Jessica Wilson performs Still Awake Still! based on the much-loved songs from the bedtime book I’m Still Awake Still! by Elizabeth Honey and Sue Johnson.

**Join the Darling children when they receive a visit from Peter Pan, who takes them to Never Never Land with local favourites the Australian Classical Youth Ballet’s production of Peter Pan. It will star TV’s Brenton Whittle and Book Worm as narrators along with some of the best young ballet dancers in Adelaide.

**Dr Froth is back with his The Incredibubble Show, a bubble bonanza of comedic, absurd, simple and sophisticated bubble tricks.
Don’t miss Andy and Terry’s hair raising tree house adventures as award-winning playwright and author Richard Tulloch brings to the stage the bestselling book by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton The 13-Storey Treehouse.

The season will finish on a high note with Toddlerthèque. Zepher Quartet with DJ/MC Astrid Pill have created a daytime dance party for the whole family.

The popular Foundation Kids Corner craft workshops will remain a mainstay, thanks to the Adelaide Festival Centre Foundation, which is committed to inspiring and stimulating young people with a great selection of fun activities themed to each week’s performance, and best of all they’re FREE!

Tickets are from $11.50 per person when purchasing tickets to four or more Something on Saturday performances (plus a $6.60 handling fee per booking, not per ticket), and single tickets are from $14.50 per person (inclusive of handling fee).
