In association with ABC, Kids Promotions is thrilled to announce Play School will be touring nationally with their new show ‘Once Upon A Time’ and… Heading to Perth and Bunbury this September!

Due to COVID, it’s been 2 years since Play School has been able to tour and the team is excited to get back in front of young fans!


“It was a very challenging time for the entertainment industry with cancelling, rescheduling shows adapting to each state’s restrictions while keeping everyone safe; it was like nothing we had ever experienced before. But we survived and can’t wait to be back out doing what we love, bringing the magic of live concerts back in front of audiences”

- Samantha Kirby, Promoter.


This year’s Play School live show brings classic nursery rhyme characters magically to life as the pages of the storybook are turned into an exciting new production, ‘Once Upon A Time’. Join Jemima, Big Ted, Little Ted and Humpty as they travel through an enchanting adventure filled with stories, favourite songs such as, ‘Humpty Dumpty’, ‘Heads and shoulders’, ‘Twinkle twinkle’, ‘Everybody clap’ and many more.

‘Once Upon A Time’ is hosted by two Play School presenters and the real stars of the show …the toys! This 45 minute show is very interactive for the children and not to be missed.

Everything in this live concert is created with pre-school children’s development in mind. With songs designed to inspire movement, complemented by quiet times, encouraging children to watch and listen. Familiarity with the presenters and material alike captivates young audiences with plenty of participation, imagination and joy.

Being Australia’s longest running children’s television program, Play School’s transition from television to live on stage entertains, educates and enliven preschoolers and parents alike.

Fun Facts | Stars of the show


Big Ted

The original ‘bear in there’, Big Ted has been a part of the Play School family since the beginning.

Big Ted has a big heart and loves giving extra special big bear cuddles!



Humpty is a very put-together egg and an egg-cellent friend to the Play School family.

When he's not cracking jokes and making his friends laugh (which is ALL the time), Humpty loves to play dress up!



Jemima is one of the first of the Play School crew, but don't ask her age - it's just not polite!

She's adventurous and creative and loves to make art and go exploring with her best friend Kiya!
