Tapstar Waterwise Education Program

Book a Tapstar Show

If you are interested in booking a Tapstar Show for your school or event, the information below will help you decide what is most suitable

Tapstar character Tapstar, our water saving super hero.

The Full Show

The Tapstar Shows go for approximately 45 minutes as is best performed on a stage in your school hall, it can also be performed outdoors under a COLA. Audience participation is part of the show so there must be access to the stage area for students to be involved.

Three actors perform in this version of the play with an inflatable prop as a set. Close proximity to the performance space for bump in is required as well as access to two 240 volt power sources.

The Shorter Show

This show is best performed at outdoor events or preschools. It goes for approximately 30 minutes and uses only two actors with a non-inflatable backdrop. The messages remain the same and include some songs and interactivity but without the storyline. The shorter version will also require access to two 240 volt power sources but less space is required.

Meet & Greet

The Tapstar Team also provide a Meet and Greet service where the characters visit local shopping centres and community events where they mingle with the crowd promoting water conservation messages and current water strategies. There is always a great experience in crowd interaction.

Show Specifications

Considerations to be aware of for the shows include:

  • The Full Version Show has a recommended audience size of 100+ and is aimed at Stages One, Two & Three (4-12 years)
  • Performance area needs to be 12m x 10m with a minimum height of 2m due to inflatable set also allowing for audience interaction
  • Access to 240 volt power – within 20m of performance location
  • Vehicle access must be available to set up area (bump in)
  • Venue is preferred to be inside a hall or large classroom or undercover (a COLA)

Important to note: There is a minimum of half hour set up time with uninterrupted access to the performance space and car parking close to the performance area to allow for easy access.
