The Pavilion Performing Arts Centre Unveils July School Holiday Kids Program


Southern Sydney’s newest home of arts and entertainment, The Pavilion Performing Arts Centre Sutherland, has unveiled its July School Holiday program, promising to captivate little imaginations with a stellar line-up of shows and experiences for kids.

This July school holidays (8-19 July), The Pavilion has enlisted a variety of local and national artists to curate an entertaining and enriching program suitable for kids, from toddlers to teenagers. Offering a combination of fun and engaging workshops, alongside live performances from artists at the top of their game, The Pavilion’s school holiday program is the perfect way to keep little ones entertained, without breaking the bank.

Kicking off the school holiday program on July 9 is In The Zone by Shaun Parker and Company – a unique performance fusing hip-hop dance with gaming technology to craft a vibrant and thrilling dance-theatre production aimed at empowering young audience members. Utilising AirSticks technology, dancer Libby Montilla will transport the audience into the realm of video games through dance, incorporating elements like locking, popping, waving, and body-ticking. Montilla will also be sticking around post-performance to run two targeted hip-hop dance classes where audience members can learn moves featured in the performance.

The workshops continue into the second week, with Circus Experience running bespoke circus/acrobatic classes right in The Pavilion foyer for kids and adults alike. Running across two days (July 15-16), grab your little tumblers and twirlers for circus workshops where they will learn the circus basics, followed by more advanced acrobatics and aerial classes for teens and adults in the afternoon and evening.

Rounding off the program, The Pavilion will be bringing Fringe Festival favourites to the mainstage, with circus duo Sam Oldham and Josie Wardrobe presenting Children Are Stinky! A multiple award-winning show, this highly innovative and skilled acrobatic show is accompanied by a rocking 80s soundtrack and funny anecdotes even Mum and Dad will enjoy.

Sean Moloney, Programming Coordinator at The Pavilion, expresses enthusiasm for this school holiday program as a valuable addition to the Pavilion’s diverse line-up. “We’re thrilled to enhance our offerings for families and children at The Pavilion. Following the resounding success of the 2023 Play! Kids Festival, we’re expanding our offerings into the July school holidays.

“In the current economic climate, we know how important it is to have workshops and experiences that won’t break the bank for families. That is why we have worked with these show partners to present a cost-effective program, with tickets for all performances on the mainstage just $29 and workshops starting at just $25. With the weather cooling down, there’s no better time to head indoors and find something fun to do with the family at The Pavilion these school holidays.”
