The Koala Who Could
Based on the story by Rachel Bright
A feelgood story portraying a positive message about facing up to change, something that young children can sometimes struggle with.
Kevin the Koala discovers sometimes change comes along whether we like it or not ...but if you let it, change can be the making of you!

KOALA IN A TREEHOUSE
In the original story by Rachel Bright, Kevin the Koala falls out of his tree because a Woodpecker pecks down the branch he's sitting on.
I adapted this concept to a tree house, and in my production Kevin emerges from his very own little home amongst the branches of a gum tree!
