The Curly Cousins present 30–55 minute scripted children's shows with rich harmonies, exotic instruments, interactive movement, audience participation and puppets. The dynamic performances are aimed at 2–10 year-olds, with an ability to engage parents and older siblings as well. They are perfect for mixed-age audiences at festivals, as well as targeted audiences at primary schools, preschools and day care centres.
 
The three Curly Cousin characters – Miss B, Coco and Sunshine – have identifying colours and characteristics which engage audiences in the theatrical and comedic aspects of the shows. Every performance includes fascinating facts presented as ‘Miss B Moments’, adding an educational content to the shows in a fun way.
 
The Curly Cousins currently have three children's shows in production, another in script development, and are able to produce a show to a given brief. See 'Themed Shows' below.

ROUND THE WORLD WITH THE CURLY COUSINS
THE CURLY COUSINS take you on a journey from their backyard out to the world beyond. Using a range of acoustic instrumentation – from marimba to melodica, guitar to cavaquinho, washboard to kazoosaphone – Miss B, Sunshine and Coco introduce melodies and rhythms from a broad range of music traditions, within a fun and familiar context. With a focus on original songs, the Curly Cousins incorporate Brazilian, Indian, French, African, reggae and calypso influences. Come on a magical Curly ride round the world and back again!
ALL ABOUT ME
This scripted, 50-minute show touches on issues all parents can relate too. Miss B goes square-eyed with computer games, Coco gets over-excited with too many red lollies, and Sunshine goes cloudy. See how the CURLY COUSINS deal with screen time, eating sweets and dealing with the grumps. With humour, uplifting music and audience interaction, this is a show for the whole family!
