Family Shows


Shelly is spending the holidays with her sport-crazy grandmother. She has a video project to finish on Aussie Sports Legends and looks for inspiration in grandma’s dark, dusty attic full of sports memorabilia. Watch on as Shelly recreates historic moments of sport in all sorts of weird, crazy, cool ways. Shelly discovers that sport has the ability to unite, excite and inspire us all. In this children’s theatre show, Charlie Truscott brings to life the stories of sporting legends like Don Bradman, Cathy Freeman and Dawn Fraser using high energy physical theatre, circus, slapstick, storytelling, characterisation and audience participation. Don’t miss it!
