THE Easter Bunny has gone missing at Westfield Whitford City shopping centre and the search is on this Saturday.

Pyjama Drama North Coastal, Perth is hosting the free community event of music, song, games and interactive drama adventures for children aged up to eight.

Children will join Pyjama Drama’s Cheryl Marron and Amanda Plumridge to find and follow clues of chocolate eggs, lolly wrappers and chocolate paw prints to find their fluffy friend.

Ms Marron said the idea came after being involved in Grill’d Whitford City’s Local Matters initiative last month.

“As a new business that offers drama and creative play classes for babies and children under seven, we see the delight in children’s faces every day as they discover the power of their imagination,” she said.

“We decided this would be the perfect opportunity to give back to the community and provide a free family-friendly event that will be fun for all involved and take everyone on an exciting journey, inspired by their imagination.

“Igniting the imagination is what we do and children love this as pretending is the way in which they make sense of the world around them.

“The added benefits we find in our classes and shows are that drama games, song, movement and role-play help develop key life skills, such as concentration, co-operation, communication and confidence, in the most fun and engaging way.”

To be involved, head to the outdoor dining precinct stage at 11.30am, with the show running until 12.15pm.

– Pyjama Drama North Coastal, Perth runs public classes at several locations including the Whitford Family Centre in Hillarys and can run sessions at early learning centres, schools, parties and events between Mullaloo and Jolimont.
