The Tapstar Show

The Tapstar Show is a fun and interactive live performance that promotes water awareness to the families and schools around the Shoalhaven, and across Australia.   

What is The Tapstar Show?

The Tapstar Show has fun and engaging performances that incorporates singing, scientific demonstrations, puppetry, and audience participation, and is a great resource to raise water awareness to a young audience. The catchy songs have proven to stick for years to come.

The show provides an opportunity for schools to become actively involved in water conservation to engage our children and the community to help create a sustainable future. 

Our Tapstar Waterwise Education Program includes:

  • The Tapstar Show - a travelling roadshow that is fun and interactive with a live stage performance, 
  • Teacher Resource Kits that complement the performances, and
  • An educational website for kids which includes fun experiments.

Primary School Shows

Aimed at children aged 5-12, this show is one of our most popular. It goes for around 45 minutes and with a recommended audience size of 100+, this show is best performed on a stage in a school hall or performed outdoors under a COLA.  With an inflatable set, an electrical supply is necessary.

Our Primary School Show includes a choice of either:

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