Today we went to check out the MusicPlay Festival at the Melbourne Recital Centre. We had a ball checking out the FREE foyer activities and also caught a show: Invisible Me.
When: Thursday 17 – Saturday 19 January 2013
Where: Melbourne Recital Centre, Southbank Boulevard, Melbourne. Click here for map.
Cost: Activities in the Foyer are FREE and are spread over three levels. Performances start at $18 (some tickets include the accompanying adult)
We had so much fun at the Recital Centre today – all up we spent over three hours playing and exploring! During this time we watched a show (Invisible Me which went for 40 minutes), made a tower with cardboard boxes, climbed stairs covered in bubble-wrap, had faces painted, listened to sounds, drew with sound, raced cars and peeked into little houses… it was only the promise of an ice-cream and two grumbling tummies that got us out the doors. If you are looking for something to do make a beeline for the Melbourne Recital Centre – the Festival only goes for three days so get in quick.
Invisible Me was a fun story about a Emu chick and exploring the idea of camouflage in different animals. As a performance held in the Salon (as opposed to the Hall) it’s incredibly intimate – the kids loved having interaction with the performers and seeing the instruments up close.

Thank you Melbourne Recital Centre for the complimentary tickets to Invisible Me.
