Bamboozled Productions is proud to be bringing Stirling Fringe back in 2020 for its fourth year with another world class program.
Featuring performers from around the world, interstate and locally, the boutique event is once again bringing the excitement of the Fringe to the tranquil Adelaide hills from the 21st of February to the 1st of March 2020.
The Stirling Lawns will again be the hub, with Bamboozled’s very own home made 100-seat, air conditioned tent, but this year, the Stirling Community Theatre will join the party as a venue.
Stirling Fringe 2020 will feature 60 shows from 42 different companies with local food and beverage vendors fuelling your Fringe adventures.
Director of Bamboozled Productions Louise Clarke says, “We are thrilled to be returning the energy and excitement of the Fringe to the Adelaide Hills with a curated program of superb shows.”
“The best part is we can experience all the thrills of the Fringe in a relaxed setting in the beautiful leafy Stirling while punters kick back with A Prancing Pony Beer or an Adelaide Hills wine. Of course, another advantage of the Stirling Fringe is the hills are always cooler and both venues are air-conditioned.”
“We are proud of the impact the Stirling Fringe has had on the hills, evident by the incredible community and business support we have had to ensure the Fringe returned to Stirling,” she says.
The event kicks off with the famous Opening Night Party on the Stirling Lawns – a free, family-friendly event. Then at 9:30 that night, the ticketed Variety Gala will begin in the Stirling Community Theatre, showcasing some of the highlights of the festival.
Another big attraction is the bar on the Stirling Lawns, which is the perfect place to soak up the atmosphere with local food and beverage fare and an open-air stage featuring a rotating schedule of free entertainment.
During the week, there are 2:30pm shows each day, including theatre piece I’ll Tell You This For Nothing – My Mother The War Hero and Bonnie Lee Galea in her Jazz in Cheek.
There are several exclusive shows you won’t find anywhere else at the show, including Australian comic Dave Thornton’s new show, Novel Problems, children’s show Talking Dogs and Mr. Snot Bottom’s Stinky Silly Show, amongst many others.
The Stirling Fringe is proud to offer a wide range of family shows, with matinees and after school shows also being a big part of the program. Kids shows include Big Tops and Tiny Tots Circus Show and Utterly Bonkers Kids – Director’s Cut.
Comedy on offer includes shows by Nick Cody and Luke Heggie, UK Based comic, Thomas Green and returning favourites, Men with Coconuts from the UK.
The theatre line-up is jam-packed featuring the likes of South Australian play Les Darcy-The Musical: Unsung hero about Boxing Legend Les Darcy, US critically acclaimed musical Josephine, and UK dark comedy Goby fresh from sold-out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Stirling Fringe 2020 is set to be another successful year with a fantastic program in a laid back setting. Jump online to get your tickets for Fringe without the frantic because it’s cooler in the Hills.
