November 22nd, 2022

Patch's 2023 Schools' Program covers all three streams – in-theatre, in-school and interactive installation – and offers the opportunity to experience Patch work in Adelaide and regional SA.


Touring SA | Term 3, Weeks 2–7 | Years K–5

We are delighted to be bringing back our award-winning show ZOOOM to SA theatres in 2023. Your students will be captivated by this immersive performance about a child who helps a lost star return home.

"Just loved it, very high-quality and extremely engaging. The children could not take their eyes off the stage.”
– Teacher

Using original music, lasers and projections, ZOOOM brings the audience on an adventure to imaginary worlds. Inspired by iconic children’s book Harold and The Purple CrayonZOOOM channels the same philosophy – a child who makes sense of their world through art.

In your classroom | Available year-round | Years K–3

Bring the magic of theatre to your classroom with Spark – a series of interactive in-school arts experiences. In each Spark session, an artist invites students to shape the experience, providing unique, student-led creative learning.

We have three Spark experiences available for booking in 2023:
– Once Upon a Jar storytelling adventure, R–3 – bookings open
– Light Painting photographic workshop, K–3 – EOIs open for 2023
– Bloom meditation experience, K–3 – EOIs open for 2023

“Loved this session... very engaging and interactive. Kids held onto every word that was spoken. It reminded me of a ‘choose your own adventure’, giving them a sense of ownership over the activity. This could link really well with the Science curriculum."
– Teacher (Spark: Once Upon a Jar)
