Go to show description
A female actor as a girl is looking down at a blue robot arm she is holding.

Different = Awesome

Juniper is constantly compared to a robot, but after encountering one on her doorstep, she begins the adventure of a lifetime. Bullies are no match for our young heroine, as she believes in herself and her passion for robots more than anything.

In this upbeat musical comedy, we follow young Juniper and her parents as they learn that life is not always predictable, rigid or consistent, no matter how hard we try. Unexpected outcomes are difficult but with the help of her parents, her robot, and a Robot Song, everything will turn out just fine.

Based on a true story, Robot Song illustrates the profound, transformative nature of creativity that when combined with unconditional love, becomes an unstoppable force. Watch the video below.

Rave Reviews

Gorgeously told and superbly crafted, a must- see for young people growing up in a world where bullying is widespread but who need to understand that difference should be seen as an asset.

Fiona Parker, AbC Radio 

Massively entertaining!

Time Out 

Engaging and with an important message about inclusion, Robot Song is a remarkable work aimed at kids 8 — 12, carrying a strong but not preachy anti-bullying rallying cry. 5 Stars!
