An illustrated green alien.

Alien Rescue Mission By theatre artist Alison Bennett

9 July 2024

In the Centre for Creativity


School Holiday Workshop

Ages 6+ | The Sydney Opera House has been visited by aliens! Join us on this interactive theatre play experience to find the left-behind alien.

Creativity is expressing our glorious inner worlds through whichever poetic form happens to float your boat.

Alison Bennett

Can you find the baby alien that was left behind?

Join us for a day of imaginative theatre play where we explore how an alien landed upon the Sydney Opera House...

You might witness alien sightings, learn an alien language or even review some hilarious ‘alien security footage’, all in the search for our alien friend. Together, we will find the best ways to draw out our shy little aliens and return them to their alien families.

Children will join the Alien Rescue Team in a fun, interactive adventure that weaves its way throughout the Opera House. Keep your eye out though, the alien might be right behind you!

These 2-hour workshops are suitable for ages 6 - 9 (kids only).

Presented by Sydney Opera House
