Tapstar Waterwise Education Program

The Tapstar Show

The Tapstar Waterwise Educational Program is a Local Government Initiative that was developed as a NSW Government Demand Management Initiative.

This fun and interactive show travels throughout Australia and is a delight to all who view it as it captures the imagination of all.

What is the Tapstar Show?

The Tapstar show is aimed at primary school children (K-6) and focuses on a typical Australian family called the Wasting’s and it deals with the important issues of water conservation and water quality in a fun and entertaining way.

Our water saving superheros Tapstar and Dripette along with the assistance of the children in the audience come to the rescue and convert the Wasting’s family to Water Wise graduates.

The performance incorporates singing, scientific demonstrations, puppetry and audience participation to get water conservation and water quality messages through to a young audience in a fun and engaging way.

There are two fun and interactive shows:

The Water Show – Discover where water comes from and how precious this resource is. This show is interactive with students being invited to come on stage and participate in the fun games, songs and activities.

The Wastewater Show – Join the Tapstar Team as they discover what should and what should not go down the drain. This program was created to educate children on what happens to water as it enters drains and sinks and how our behaviour can affect the quality of water that ends up in our waterways.
