A Principal kidnapped by a super villain, a bunch of kids trying to decide what the best trilogy is for a movie night and a group of campers lost in the middle of the bush recounting some of the scariest horror movie scenes ever! These are just some of the scenes in “Let’s Go to the Movies” – a show that celebrates Action, Romance, Monsters, Quests and more!
Fiona has been writing children’s stage plays for over twenty years.
She began her writing career adapting and performing in much-loved fairytales like Little Red Riding Hood and Alice In Wonderland, which were mounted on rickety stages in Melbourne shopping centres. As much as Fiona loved being chased around Boronia Mall by over-zealous under-12s wanting Red Riding Hood’s autograph, she soon moved on from panto work but maintained a love of writing for youngsters. Most recently, Fiona has written original and adapted plays for the Victorian Youth Theatre, Stage School Australia, as well as plays for primary schools including Ripponlea Primary School and Bentleigh West Primary School.
