“Christmas Tree Fairy” and “Ballerina Bunny” performances were presented as after school “special events” at Riverton Library.
"Rebecca performed each of these shows at Riverton Library to audiences of approximately 90 children, many of whom were below school age, accompanied by parents and other family members. Her seasonally-themed storytelling was enhanced by frequent interludes of singing and dancing with opportunities for everyone to participate. Many of the budding ballerinas in each audience arrived suitably attired in tutus and were entranced by the “real ballerina” performing right in front of their eyes! Rebecca’s operatic quality singing was a highlight, with library users beyond the intended audience enjoying the free performance!
Rebecca’s every performance is also a visual feast – from her costume to displays and props, a myriad of appropriate, eye-catching details delight the eye and keep young audience members engaged. Ballerina Bunny’s collection of coloured eggs and tiny baskets were an almost irresistible attraction with every child hoping to be chosen to participate in the story’s action. As a finale, “Ballerina Bunny” distributed Easter eggs from a hidden basket that appeared “as if by magic”!
Rebecca is sure of a large and enthusiastic audience whenever she may visit Riverton Library again."

"As always a beautiful, engaging and entertaining performance! I received plenty of positive feedback from the EA's, specialist teachers and of course the children! We look forward to seeing you again at the end of the year!" - Easter Tales with Ballerina Bunny Show

"Hi Rebecca, I just wanted to say that my daughter went to your Ocean Magic show last week and she was absolutely captivated by your show. As a parent I loved how you incorporated the children into the show, giving them the opportunity to really feel part of the experience through music and movement. My daughter who is 3 hasn't stopped talking about Sapphire the mermaid for the last few days . It was a pleasure coming to the show and I look forward to coming shows in the future. You are an outstanding performer / storyteller and the children's eyes just seem to light up when they see you." - Ocean Magic Musical Storytelling Show

“Rebecca performed the Christmas Tree Fairy for our Kindy and Pre-Primary children and they along with the teachers thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the show. Rebecca held the children's attention and they were taken to a magical land through her amazing storytelling and beautiful singing. The children loved singing along with the Christmas Tree Fairy and following along with the actions. I would recommend Rebecca's Musical Incursions to all Early Childhood classes that want to provide that something special for their students!"
