Baba Yaga

Vaselina lives the quiet life, safely tucked away on the third floor of a very tall apartment block eating noodles (not spicy) and polishing her beloved spoon collection. But all that changes when she is forced to confront the terrifying Baba Yaga who plays her music far too loudly and eats jelly babies with her mouth open. Who is this mysterious neighbour? Will she ever turn the music down? And what exactly is she planning for dinner?

An explosion of rhythm and song springs to life as an ensemble of animals move out of the kitchen and on to the glittering stage, complete with magic cupboard, hatching baby chickens and a gigantic washing machine. Specially crafted to provide our toddlers and pre-schoolers with intimate theatrical experiences, this musical humbug goes off with a ting-tong clickety bang!

Fugitive

Fugitive

It’s a fantasy, manga, hip-hop, slacker Australia, some time in the near future. The leaders have disappeared and it’s every man for himself. In the fog of this urban chaos, a young man returns. A guy with strange power and a backpack of destruction. His name is Robin. In a bold retelling of the classic folklore Robin Hood, Fugitive is a hysterical, anarchic knife-edge ride that is contemporary Australian theatre at its best.

When dancing instructions are too difficult to understand, he invents his own dance and calls it ‘The Grug’.
