Fairytale Cookbook (The Show) by Impro Melbourne

Open The Fairytale Cookbook, choose your ingredients, and let us whip you up an improvised fairytale as you've never seen before. Start off with a Hero, add a splash of Pirate King, or spice it up with a Witch... the choice is yours!

The Fairytale Cookbook Show is an improvised storytelling format created especially with kids in mind. The audience helps cast the actors, choose the characters for the tales, and guide the Hero safely (or dangerously!) through the adventure they have created.

The Fairytale Cookbook is a unique chance for the students to have REAL input into a show rather than passive predetermined pantomime choices of the past.

The Fairytale Cookbook encourages students to listen, respond, share ideas and think creatively. The story creation ‘recipe’ from the show can immediately be taken back into the classroom to continue developing the students’ skills in storytelling and creative writing.
