MAYBE A MIRACLE!
Charlie is feeling just a bit overwhelmed. He does his best but sometimes his best doesn’t seem good enough, especially when he compares himself to other kids who seem to make difficult tasks look so easy. And then there are chores, and an annoying little sister to contend with at home. Like any other kid Charlie has dreams – to be a rock star, explore different places, be a scientist that solves the problems of the world – but they seem to get further away every day. To be honest he’d be happy if he could find the space to have just a bit more fun now and then. Charlie wonders that maybe a miracle is what he needs to change things for the better. However when something totally unexpected reveals that there are miracles happening all around him, he needs to figure out what to do with them.
Will some of the books that Charlie recently discovered provide a clue?
MAYBE A MIRACLE! is a new educational musical adventure from Perform Education and touring schools in partnership with The Children’s Book Council of Australia, to celebrate Children’s Book Week® 2024 Reading is Magic.
A highly interactive musical exploration of making the most of even the most ordinary situations and a celebration of the power of positive thinking. MAYBE A MIRACLE! is a joyful leap into the world of imagination that books inspire every individual to be part of, while featuring a selection of the 2024 CBCA Short Listed books to help point the way.
The show consists of comedic and interactive science sketches, introducing crazy characters and relatable situations, delivered by our Actor/Educators. Student audience and volunteers become part of the action, and are encouraged to offer suggestions that the actor will incorporate. The result is that students get to have input in the show, while watching and learning!
CHOOSE YOUR OWN VERSION:
We provide three different versions of MAYBE A MIRACLE! to suit the year levels watching. You can choose from either; Junior, General or Senior primary versions.
Each version also features a select collection of books specific to their age level. You can see which books are featured in each version here:
The livestream performance is hosted by your personal Actor/Educator interacting and discussing live-in-real-time with your students and classrooms, as they introduce the filmed educational theatre episodes of the exciting Children's Book Week® 2024 adventure. The livestream lesson includes interactive segments for students to answer quizzes connected to the learning points, have guided discussions on the educational themes and ask questions in real time!
The educational episodes are captured live-on-film with multi-cameras and in high definition, meaning everyone will be watching from the best seat in the house.

The students loved it all. They were engaged, participated, laughed and loved to learn the dance moves before the live stream. They also loved the interaction with you all, calling out answers to questions and waving to you. Thank you for a great performance
