“Echelon Productions” produce high quality performances for Primary students which inspire literacy and reading. Using quirky and imaginative storylines, these highly talented performers energetically entertain and enthral audiences with comedy, role-play, storytelling and imaginative escapades.
SUPER DUPER is a brand new educational musical for schools with an exciting, dynamic and interactive narrative created to celebrate Book Week 2017, the CBC shortlist and its 2017 theme Escape to Everywhere.
Exploring the themes of striving to be your best and not underestimating people’s potential, SUPER DUPER also literally gets students involved in the story as decisions made by the audience during the show help determine what happens.
Plus there is a surprise at the very end that reinforces the themes of inclusiveness and understanding every individual’s potential to achieve.
