Auntie Janet Saves the Planet

This is an interactive opera for 3 to 6 year olds, involving music, songs, laughter and high adventure.  Commissioned by North Ayrshire Council, it was aimed at raising awareness of environmental issues.  This resulted in 1400 nursery and infant school pupils from North Ayrshire attending 28 performances of Aunti Janet Saves the Planet.   

In 2005 - working in a partnership with North Ayrshire Council, East Ayrshire Council,  Aberdeen City Council, West Lothian Council and Shetland Isles Council, there were 72 performances of Auntie Janet involving over 3,500 children.
