Party Pooper features all the classics: Pin the Tail on the Donkey, Hula Hoops, Pass the Parcel, Popping Balloons, Handstands, Confetti Cannons and the jaw-dropping Acrobatics that Australian Circus is renowned for.

There’ll be hula hooping, handstands and giant, flippy tumbling on show as well as pranks, silly facial expressions and balloons popping like wild.

Wildhouse Circus founder; Felicia Lannan says:

“We’ve tried to capture that real spark that kids have when it comes to celebrating themselves and their achievements. Which contrasts quite starkly with the character of the ‘party pooper’ – who represents a very adult approach to ‘not making a big deal about themselves’.”

Wildhouse Circus (formed in 2012 in Melbourne) is a national award-winning circus company, composed of internationally renowned artists.

The creative ensemble are three professional circus artists, each of which grew up in youth circus including Australia’s Leading National Youth Circus; The Flying Fruit Fly Circus, and Adelaide’s own; Cirkidz.

REVIEW: THE LITTLE MERMAID

REVIEW: THE LITTLE MERMAID

REVIEW: THE LITTLE MERMAID

Presented by The South Australian Children’s Ballet Company

When Sebastian the crab sang “Darling it’s better under the sea’ in the Disney movie version of The Little Mermaid, you could be forgiven for thinking he was referring to The Little Mermaid ballet, presented by The South Australian Children’s Ballet Company… because wonderful things certainly surrounded us on the ocean floor at Star Theatre One in the SACBC Fringe performance of the show for the Adelaide Fringe Festival.

the little mermaid Adelaide Fringe

Adapted from the beloved Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale version of The Little Mermaid, from the minute the curtain raised at the Star, the audience of young theatre goers (and their adults!) was taken on a journey from the depths of the ocean floor to the opulent royal palace and beyond.

Anyone with children (or who was once a child themselves) will be familiar with the storyline; young Ariel (played by Heather Benn), a whimsical mermaid harbouring a fascination with dry land, falls in love with the handsome Prince Eric (Thomas Hall) when she spots him and his crew sailing the deep oceans. The evil sea witch, Ursula (Lexi Hopkins) uses the opportunity to make a cruel deal with Ariel – offering her legs in exchange for her voice, and three days to seal her fate with true loves kiss by sunset.

In order to make the ballet accessible for even the smallest audience members, the story is narrated by The Spirit of the Sea (Erihana Winsor) – who navigates the ocean floor in a killer pair of heels (!!) outlining the major plot points, seamlessly piecing each scene together with the rest of the story being told through the magic of dance.

The Little Mermaid

Stand out moments in the show, which was choreographed by Paul Boyd, with Beverley Waters on board for Artistic Direction, were the underwater scenes performed by the ensemble cast of sea creatures, big and small – including the cutest crab you’ve ever seen! The costuming here was a triumph in and of itself, with all the bright hued Disney-esque jollity you would hope to see in a performance of The Little Mermaid for kids, and absolute commitment of the dancers to their “fish faces”; these fun glimpses into the underwater world were a joy to watch and the audience was in deep!

the little mermaid

You could be forgiven for thinking the dancers, who vary in age between 10 and 19, were seasoned professionals with decades of experience on the stage. A lot of commitment and dedication has clearly gone into learning and perfecting the roles, with nary a single break in character or discernible misstep made, and the onstage flirtation between Ariel and Eric believable enough to make my 6 year old daughter blush! Hopkins rendition of Ursula, the Sea Witch was an absolute standout, and props must go to Gideon Milllar, the young First Mate, who put a spring into every step he danced.

Unsurprisingly, the SACBC had to put on an extra showing of The Little Mermaid this Fringe season, due to popular demand, and this amateur theatre goer can see why, the performance was magical from start to FINish!

Bubba licious

REVIEW: BUBBA-LICIOUS

Full of energy, music and bub-friendly

WORDS: Caitlin Robinson

If you’re after an affordable, engaging excuse to go to the Fringe with your little tyke then Bubba-licious could be exactly what you’re after.

bubbalicious

Kat and her assistants put on an energetic performance complete with shadow puppets, lights and music. Sing-a-longs include familiar tunes like Twinkle Twinkle and Incy Wincy Spider, and incorporate themed props.

Throw into the mix a few songs which, although unfamiliar, are performed with just as much enthusiasm (and some pretty cool light up costumes!) and you have a performance that most toddlers would stare at in amazement (mine did!)

bubbalicious

It’s simply put together, and you’ll have your little one on your lap, but for a perfectly timed 30 minutes of your day, they’ll be bopping, clapping or eyes-wide with wonder and you can sit back and enjoy, knowing you’re in a child friendly environment around other parents.

With a bit of comedy, lots of singing and some crazy dance moves, Bubba-licious is a show made for toddlers by a mum who knows what they’re all about. Top it off with a lovely stroll in the gardens afterwards and you’ve got yourself a day well spent!

Dates: Sat 20 Mar – Sun 21 Mar: 11am, 11:45am
Venue: Ukiyo at Gluttony
