FREE TIX - Stark and Dormy

FREE TIX - Stark and DormyIn a small town, trouble is brewing...

The latest creation by local award-winning outfit Bunk Puppets, Stark and Dormy is the ultimate dark comedy adventure featuring puppetry, sketch comedy, and unabashedly cool Lo-Fi effects.

Weaving together the lives of several outlandish characters living in a seaside town, Stark and Dormy meshes a struggling theme park owner with a dark secret, a teenage girl losing touch with her father, a captive ape plotting escape, a vain restaurateur desperate to be on the culinary cutting edge... and a hungry alien creature just about to crash-land.

Part Sci-Fi spoof and part social satire, master storytellers Bunk Puppets use a blend of puppetry and sketch comedy to create an entertaining universe steeped in imagination and creativity, all duly lacquered with a good dose of dark wit.

Based in Melbourne, Australia, Bunk Puppets are a multi-award winning company creating cutting edge shadow puppet theatre. Running since 2010, they have traversed the globe and built an outstanding international reputation with their absurdist visual stories.

West Side Story

In any field there are the standards, the yardstick by which all others in that arena are measured and in musical theatre – many regard West Side Story as that benchmark.

Cold Lasagne Hate Myself 1999 | James Acaster

You may have seen him on Netflix with his quirky style and very well crafted material. If you come with expectations you won't be disappointed but perhaps a little surprised. Because this time Acaster is a bad ass!

A Flowering Tree | Opera Queensland

Opera Queensland deserves great praise for opening their 2019 season with this lovely work. If there is one contemporary opera to make audiences realise that it is still a wonderful artistic form, and that we don’t always need Puccini, this is it.

Not Quite White | Vanessa Steinberg

Steinberg opens with a long, graphic diatribe about dating as a 53-year-old serial divorcee with a history of drug use and adversity to working for a living.

Go Solo | Paul McDermott and Gatesy

If you’re a fan of a particular muso or comic, you’ve probably wondered what they’re like at home or with their mates. Tripod and DAAS fans now have that option. At least occasionally.
