In Our Theatre
School Excursion Program
For many of our audience members, we are their first live performing arts experience, and we understand the important role that creative experiences play in the educational and emotional development of young people.
A Spare Parts experience is a wonderful way to nurture young people’s skills in empathy, relationship building, resilience, creative thinking, and storytelling, whilst also being a great way to connect with each other and create memorable experiences.
Please note the forms are requests to book only and your booking request is subject to availability. If you have any enquiries, you can call our Bookings & Administration Officer on (08) 9335 5044.

Spare Parts aims to create experiences that compliment and enhances the teaching process, while finding meaningful ways to link to the curriculum
Our performances encourage students to respond, examine and interpret the text, exploring meaningful ways to connect with the story and the art form and address many general capabilities including Literacy, Critical and Creative Thinking, Personal and Social Capability, Ethical Understanding, and Intercultural Understanding.
Extensive and detailed Teachers’ Notes are distributed with each booking. These include classroom activities and learning tools that have been developed by teachers, for teachers.
You can find our previous Teacher Resource Kits here.
“The teacher resources are particularly excellent and thorough. I will definitely keep the pack for ideas in other learning areas.”
– Teacher, Bicton Primary School

Plan Your Excursion
We’re committed to making your school excursion a memorable one and are happy to answer any questions you have. Here are a few basics to get you started.
The theatre is a short walk from the Claremont train station, making it a hassle-free journey for school excursions. If your school is located along the train line, why not jump on the train?
Arrive stress-free by taking a bus. There is plenty of onsite parking including bus bays, so can drop your students off right at our doorstep.
Our theatre is located at Claremont Showground and there are plenty of grassed areas to sit down before or after the show. School bags and lunch boxes may be stored in the pavilion area during the show.
Our puppet theatre is committed to providing accessibility for all visitors. We offer wheelchair ramps, accessible seating, and facilities to ensure that everyone can enjoy our performances to the fullest.
Upon booking you will receive a copy of our public liability insurance certificate and evacuation plan.
Take advantage of our captivating pre-show activities, thoughtfully designed to align with the themes of the featured performance. Located in the adjacent pavilion, these activities will immerse students in the world of puppetry, fostering creativity and a deeper understanding of the show they’re about to enjoy.
