This September school holidays a unique theatre show is touring the local region to raise funds for a little Coolum girl who is living with a rare and debilitating disease, and ‘Twinkle and the Moon’ is set to show that little Tallulah Moon is the most special and unique moon of all!
Twinkle and the Moon is an interactive, theatre and literacy experience for children aged 2 – 7 years created by Nadia Sunde, one of Queensland’s most celebrated and beloved children’s theatre writers and performers.
Snuggled into their blanket cubby house, Nadia and Twinkle always share a book together before nap time and during the show they will be reading a book about a rocket ship! But…when the book is finished and it’s time for bed…Twinkle wants to play a game instead and from here Twinkle and Nadia use the power of imagination to blast off on an adventure full of sing-along songs, make-believe and fantastical storytelling.
Presented by Coolum-based arts company Red Chair, Twinkle and The Moon is touring these September school holidays to support Tallulah Moon who is living with an ultra-rare disease called SPG56.
Tallulah’s parents are actively funding research to find a cure for SPG56 through their charity – Genetic Cures for Kids and keep on going due to the overwhelmingly positive support from the community.
Tallulah’s mother Golden said that acts of love from people in the community propels them forward each day.
“The researchers give us hope because a cure can be developed, but it just takes money to get there.
However, it’s the incredible love of strangers and people in the community that gives us the energy to keep going every day.
“We are so grateful to wonderful folk from Red Chair – they simply heard about our Tallulah Moon, and took her life challenge into their hearts and turned it into hope by making Twinkle and the Moon a charitable tour,” Golden said.
“With people like this in the world, this moon shot to cure a rare genetic disease truly is possible.”
Tickets to Twinkle and the Moon will be just $10 (or $35 for a family of 4) and are on sale now at redchair.com.au Fifty per cent of all ticket sales will be donated to Genetic Cures for Kids and to follow Tallulah’s story please visit www.ourmoonsmission.org
