Award winning actress and creative producer, Jennifer Monk, has adapted her online Super Jenny series (that was created and released during COVID) into a live touring show.
Super Jenny is a show for pre-school children that is entertaining, engaging, fun and educational. The show incorporates fine and gross motor skills, Auslan sign language, singing, dancing and musical terms. Super Jenny encourages creativity, imaginative play and cognitive learning that goes hand in hand to enhance all children’s physical and intellectual development.
This Super Jenny LIVE production will explore sustainability, mindfulness and coastal care themes through song, dance and play allowing for a young audience to learn while having fun and being entertained in a safe environment.
This 30-minute show will encourage a family friendly environment and include musical instrument play and the option for a post-show photo opportunity with Super Jenny. This LIVE show is a great occasion for your community to experience independent theatre in the comfort of their own town. It will be a rewarding and
welcomed event for families to enjoy post covid and allow the local children to express themselves creatively.
Jennifer and a La Mama rep will tour nine towns in regional Victoria during the April school holidays to present this LIVE show to encourage
local communities to engage with each other and the art of theatre.
Camperdown and DIstrict Community House has purchased the Super Jenny Live show, and two performances will be available FREE of charge to all Corangamite pre-school aged children and their families.

A word from Jennifer Monk
“During the pandemic I was forced to give up my city apartment and relocate to regional Victoria and stay with family because my creative projects and
employment were cancelled and restricted. But it has been great reuniting with a community where I grew up and I am excited that after 2 years of not
performing that my first show back treading the boards will be in regional Victoria and with my favourite theatre people at La Mama.” – Jennifer Monk
