Hijabi Girl: A musical puppet show
Set in an Australian primary school during Book Week, Hijabi Girl: A Musical Puppet Show is a fun, thought-provoking romp featuring 39 spectacular puppets, 7 catchy songs, some intriguing UV puppetry, plenty of audience interaction, and a story that helps us see that all kinds of children can be heroes.
8 year old school-girl Melek, who wants to start her own Aussie Rules girls’ football team, is unable to find a book character in a hijab for her Book Week Parade costume. She decides to solve this problem with some awesome help from new girl Tien (who draws fantastic worlds).
With themes around diversity, identity, anti-bullying and creative problem solving, Hijabi Girl, based on a children’s book by Hazel Edwards and Ozge Alkan, is the live kids show Australia needs right now.
Songs from the musical are available to listen to on Spotify and iTunes in the lead up to the show.
