Children's Concert



Imagin Arta - Australian Puppet Centre has been writing, performing and creating for over 30years.  Located in Sutton Forest, they have shows every Sunday at 11am. The language of puppetry speaks to everyone. During a puppet show audiences young and old are transported to a place filled with joy and imagination. It is an artform with ancient roots that has continued to evolve and remain relevant in the modern world.

At ImaginArta we have created an Australian Puppet Centre that celebrates puppetry. We have an exquisite collection of puppets, some more than 50 years old as well as an extensive puppetry library. We have puppets to learn from and puppets to play with.

At Imagin Arta they want to give you a taste of the joys of experiencing a live puppet show, presenting some of Australia’s best puppeteers and those of overseas when they are visiting Australia.

Have you ever wondered what really goes on in the zoo at night?  “The Funky Zoo” draws back the curtains
and gives you a front row sneak peak into just what happens when all the humans go to sleep…
The story begins when a little girl named Leanne, who is very worried about the animals, is magically 
transported to the zoo late one night.  She befriends a wombat who tells her exactly what the animals get up 
to at night – PARTYING! 

A fun song and dance filled adventure unfolds as Leanne is led through her own dreaming.  She meets 
the rather serious and emotional Glenys the Kangaroo, the lazy but lovely Kelly the Koala, the crazily funny but 
very wise Charlie the Kookaburra and the rather sad little Stephen the Echidna.

Leanne’s fun, however, is short lived when Stephen the Echidna escapes from the zoo and takes the party spirit 
with him. Will he survive? Does he know that life beyond the Funky Zoo is not how he remembers it? 
More importantly, why did he go? With the help of Charlie, Glenys, Brian and Kelly, Leanne sets out on a journey 
to find her new friend and have her questions answered. 

Will Stephen be found and will The Funky Zoo get its party spirit back?  Come along and find out.
