Bucket's List: Melbourne Fringe on Tour

‘quirky, hilarious and heartwarming... Bucket’s List is a true gem of a show and should not be missed.’  Beat Magazine
 
Experience the inner city’s Melbourne Fringe on tour in the Hills – with this dark comedy about love and buckets by award winning Belgrave writer Sarah Collins.

Bucket (Justin Kennedy) loved his work at the bucket factory for 19 years and 364 days and was happy to stay for the next 20 years, but bucket peak has been reached. He finds a new job as a wedding DJ, and realises that he’s never had his own wedding dance and, with the help of his neighbours and a sexed-up and cynical possum, he goes looking for love.

Stay tuned for comedy workshops with Sarah Collins and Justin Kennedy

The Gizmo,

Written by Verity Laughton, Adapted from the novel by Paul Jennings

Published by Penguin Australia. // An NCM production.

"Something is in my pocket. Something made of steel. It is the Gizmo. It is back in my pocket even though I just threw it away. What is going on here? Am I going nuts? Or what?"

A hilarious, fun filled adventure that will have the whole family in stitches.

Whilst at the local fair, Stephen is baited by his hero Floggitt into stealing. He steals the whirling, twirling illuminating Gizmo, that sends him on a wild adventure. Finding it impossible to just simply get rid of the Gizmo by returning, burying or throwing on to a passing coal train, the Gizmo starts to exact it's revenge by placing Stephen in several extra-ordinary situations!

Join Stephen and Floggitt on this hilarious and playful journey of self discovery through music, puppetry, physical storytelling and visual effects.

Recommended ages 6+
