The show is brilliant. An incredible blend of playful comedy and circus with a dance track that had me unable to sit still in my seat. This show engaged the audience young and old and the three performers were awesome. – Kids in Adelaide
If you’re a family who like to laugh this Fringe show is for you. I’m talking thigh slapping good old fashioned fun and laughs. This show has something for everyone including THE BEST facial expressions ever, thumb wars, hoola hoops, word play gags, banana phones and guns (who doesn’t love those), juggling, jiving, shadow plays and silly string.
Our family group consisted of me Mum 39, aunty 40 and great aunt 65 and the kids Miss 5 and Miss 12. The age gap with the kids can be tricky and when this show listed the ideal age range as 5-12 I thought ‘ Perfect!’ I can put that to the test.
The 5 year old was enthralled and the 12 year old was surprised how much she loved it and laughed and has asked to check out the other show by this company that’s coming to the fringe too.
We all gave it 10/10 and think kids as folk 4 – 104 will love it !
Lasting 60 minutes it’s the perfect family show in the Garden.
