Olive And The Dream Train
Thu 01 Jan 1970
A rollercoaster ride through the mind-boggling mysteries of everyday life…
Olive is always daydreaming. She daydreams about whats going on inside her cats head, or about that weird picture above her bed of a steam train puffing out of a fireplace… Then one day, on her way to school, another very odd train chugs into the station- its studded with olives, for one thing, and theres no driver….So Olive boldly jumps aboard and, WOOHOO, shes driving her very own dream train and it can take her absolutely anywhere!
Written by Daniel Jamieson, Olive & the Dream Train is a wonderfully playful story for five to eleven year olds about the value of creative thinking. The show combines performance with puppetry and live music.
