Orchestra Victoria: Introducing Teddy
February 18 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm$10
Introduce your children to the magic of live music and storytelling with Orchestra Victoria and The Wheeler Centre!
Introducing Teddy is a gentle story about gender, being true to yourself and being a good friend. Teddy knows in her heart that she is a girl, not a boy. Will her friends understand? Will they call her Tilly?
Set to the sounds of the clarinet, cello, and percussion instruments, and narrated by DANDROGYNY, this musical adaption by Christine Pan brings Jessica Walton’s heart-warming picture book to life.
Young audience members should bring their favourite toy to the event, they will make a special outfit for them and introduce them in style at our special pre-show Teddy Bear’s Picnic. This is the perfect opportunity for young audiences to have their passion for music and storytelling ignited, and to celebrate all of the things that make us unique.
