Little Blobs of Clay - an evening with Oscar award-winning animator Adam Elliot

Adam Elliot is one of Australia's most celebrated stop-motion animators and certainly our most successful short filmmaker. His six short films have been viewed by millions of people and

have built his international recognition as a master storyteller.

Through creativity, big dreams and sheer hard work, Adam took on the giants of Disney, Pixar and Fox to win an Academy Award for his clay-animation Harvie Krumpet. With the

release of his next film in 2022, Adam will share his insight into how groundbreaking technology and innovation is transforming the animation industry.

Victorian Teachers Games 2019

The Victorian Teachers’ Games (VTG) is an annual event for education professionals, held in the first week of the September school holidays.

Participants have the opportunity to compete in over 40 sporting and social activities with almost 80 competition categories spread over four days and four nights of competition.

While the primary focus for the event is on sporting competition, the Games also has a social and educational component.

VTG is seen as a great way to extend what we do in schools to educate Victoria’s teachers of the value of sport competition, participation and the role being active plays in overall health and wellbeing.

VTG also provides significant professional development and team building opportunities for whole staff and individual teachers.

Geelong has won the right to host the Victorian Teachers Games for the next two years, in a homecoming to the event’s original location.

Up to 3,000 teachers from around the state will descend on the Geelong region for the 24th edition of the games from 22 to 25 September 2019.

Given access to beaches, the bay and river, we expect some exciting water based events will be on the program in 2019!

Register now!

The Games also return to Geelong in 2020!

This event is proudly supported by the City of Greater Geelong via Geelong Major Events funding.

Dr Seuss's Cat In The Hat

Children and adults alike are sure to be left in raptures by this zany and imaginative live performance of Dr Seuss’s masterpiece, The Cat in the Hat.

The show is heading to The Playhouse Theatre after a sellout tour of New Zealand.

This stage adaptation of the best selling book was created by the National Theatre of Great Britain. It faithfully tells the story of a brother and sister, bored at home on a rainy day...(without their Mother!!??) when they are visited by none other than ‘The Cat’ in his red and white striped Hat....(which they let in the door!!??).

Their outspoken and outraged pet Fish (yip the fish talks...and is the babysitter!!) is astounded and concerned, but this cat will not be deterred. He will teach us all to make our own fun with nothing but a little imagination. "It's fun to have fun, but you have to know how." Along with his friends, Thing One and Thing Two (Hey we all have those types of friend’s) they turn the house upside down leaving mess everywhere but have no fear because The Cat brings in his red ‘Picker-Up Machine’ and all is back to normal before Mum walks back in the door.

Don't miss The Cat in the Hat, live on stage!
