King of the Kids

No glitter – simply guitar, kazoo and rock ‘n’ roll rhymes with King of the Kids!

The pied piper of little people, Tim Jackman will have you under his musical spell before you can say ‘Hickory Dickory Rock!’

You'll be happy and you'll know it as you join The King to dance and sing to a classic set of songs about twinkling stars, climbing spiders, tipping teapots and a whole lot of animals. You're guaranteed to be Feelin' Groovy by the encore... and that's what it's all about!

King of the Kids, Tim Jackman, is an actor, singer and guitarist who has been entertaining children and adults alike for nearly two decades. With guitar, kazoo and classic nursery rhymes, Tim brings music and rhythm to the heads, shoulders, knees and toes of every audience. He was a regular favourite at the Sydney Children's Festival and has toured with Play School and Bananas in Pyjamas.

Out of the Box festival offers opportunities for children to engage in arts-rich experiences to explore and extend in-class literacy and learning. Teachers can deepen their student’s engagement with and experience of the festival by talking to them about the different in-theatre experiences, workshops and activities before, during and after their day.

To help with this, the Out of the Box festival team has prepared numerous Creative Learning Guides which link the in-theatre experiences, activities and workshops at the festival with the Early Years Learning Framework and the Australian Curriculum (Version 8). Key messages, learning activities and other resources are also included.
