A moun­tain ad­ven­ture star­ring your fam­ily

The Advertiser - - NEWS - ROBYN DOU­GLASS

PIN­ING to get to the theatre? For less than the price of a sin­gle ticket, you can down­load a the­atri­cal ex­pe­ri­ence for the whole fam­ily. The hitch? You’re the au­di­ence and the per­form­ers.

Moun­tain Goat Moun­tain an at-home ad­ven­ture quest. is

It’s the brain­child of Su­san­nah Sweeney, the cre­ative pro­ducer of chil­dren’s arts fes­ti­val DreamBIG.

Moun­tain Goat Moun­tain gen­er­ally takes about 45 min­utes – but you can go at your own pace. It’s an op­por­tu­nity to use your imag­i­na­tion – and make be­lieve.

“It’s a fan­tas­tic ex­pe­ri­ence for chil­dren that isn’t on screen,” Sweeney said. “Adults love it, too.”

Olivia Power went to the moun­tain with her chil­dren Bebe, 13 and Zapha, 6.

She said the whole fam­ily loved it, but she was pleas­antly sur­prised at how much Bebe “adored” it.

“It is a re­ally beau­ti­ful exADELAIDE pe­ri­ence, re­lax­ing and gen­tle – and the mes­sage was beau­ti­ful,” Ms Power said.

Thresh­old Theatre per­form­ers sup­plied the story, voices, mu­sic and chore­og­ra­phy, and the $12.95 cost to down­load goes di­rectly back to the artists.
