Edward and Edwina the Emus
The Adelaide Symphony Orchestra presents Edward and Edwina the Emus on tour
The Adelaide Symphony Orchestra’s ETSA Utilities Learning program brings Edward and Edwina the Emus to life for a series of special school holiday performances, from 9 – 11 July at the Santos Conservation Centre at the Adelaide Zoo, in conjunction with the ElectraNet Touring Ensembles.
This wonderful theatrical production, which is based on the much-loved books by Sheena Knowles with music by Peter Webb features nine wind, string and percussion players from the ASO and performers from Giggly Kids.
Edward the Emu was sick of the zoo,
There was nowhere to go, there was nothing to do,
And compared to the seals that lived right next door,
Well being an emu was frankly a bore.
Tired of his life as an emu, Edward decides to try being something else for a change. He tries swimming with the seals. He spends a day lounging with the lions. He even does a stint slithering with the snakes.
But Edward soon discovers that being an emu may be the best thing after all.
And so he returns to his pen, only to find a big surprise awaiting him. . . .
