Musical Entertainment for Children

We have been performing at early childhood centres all over Queensland for over a decade. Our shows have been carefully developed by early childhood specialists to support classroom themes and to complement a variety of events including Book Week, Children's Week and end of year celebrations. The performances are:

  • a combination of live music, movement, storytelling and colourful props
  • suitable for children aged 2-5 years
  • highly interactive
  • presented by two performers


Emotions Show - 1, 2, 3 Smile

A madcap journey through the world of emotions to support issues of self-esteem and friendship. Through the use of music and storytelling the children will have opportunities to recognise and communicate a range of feelings and emotions. The performance seeks to support emotional literacy development in young children which will help them to be socially competent and enable them to recognise and respond to social cues appropriately. View a video of one of the songs from the show.

Hands-on Music Show - Let's Sing

The Fabulous Lemon Drops will bring guitars, ukuleles, kazoos, slide whistles and a big box full of interesting percussion instruments. Through the sounds made by the instruments the children will be taken on a musical adventure. During the performance the children will have many opportunities to sing a range of songs, and experience basic musical concepts such as pitch, rhythm and tempo by experimenting with a wide variety of simple percussion instruments. This is a fabulous opportunity to enable children to express themselves creatively and experience the joys of live music making.

Multicultural Show - All Around The World

All aboard as the Fabulous Lemon Drops embark on an exciting trip around the world. Using the power of imagination the children will travel on an adventure to all four corners of the globe. On the way they will meet a range of exotic animals, dance with the lion dancers at a Chinese festival, and play some interesting musical instruments. This exciting, colourful and educational show, intends to open up the imaginations of each and every child, encouraging dancing, singing and laughter. It provides an opportunity to celebrate difference and explore a variety of cultures. The show culminates in a cacophony of musical celebration with every child having hands-on experience playing percussion instruments from all around the world.
