The award-winning physical theatre production, Happy-Go-Wrong, is returning to Adelaide from the 8th – 10th of December at the Space Theatre, for three not to be missed appearances.
The performance has won five well-deserved awards through numerous standing ovations and sold-out seasons across the nation.
“Making Happy-Go-Wrong saved my life. After a tiny tick bite sent me to the brink and back through developing Lyme disease, I realised that sometimes being thrown upside down can put you back up the right way. As I continue to fight for my health, and seek out the happy in all the wrong, Happy-Go-Wrong is a lifeline that shines a light on the invisible battles that so many face on a daily basis.” says multi-award-winning performer, writer and theatre-maker, Andi Snelling.
Happy-Go-Wrong is a solo physical theatre journey which showcases human resilience through humour and narration on roller skates. It is an extraordinary real-life story of inspiring performer, Andi Snelling, who experienced the fight of a lifetime after she has a close encounter with death from a nasty tick bite. Little to Andi’s knowledge, she is about to conduct her own rescue with the help of a reasoning French angel.
Happy-Go- Wrong’s awards include The Advertiser’s Best Theatre of Adelaide Fringe Festival 2021, Adelaide Critics’ Circle Weekly Award – Adelaide Fringe 2021, Best Theatre Weekly Award – Adelaide Fringe 2021, SA Tour Ready Award – Melbourne Fringe 2019 and Best Marketing Award – New Zealand Fringe 2020.
“I can’t wait for this exciting return of the show to my chosen hometown of Adelaide.” Snelling says.
Snelling’s accomplishments consist of Edith in Picnic at Hanging Rock (BBC), Brinda in Neighbours (Fremantle Media), Ensemble in Crazy for You (London Palladium) and Inflight Voice for Qatar Airways.
She is also an ambassador for the Lyme Disease Association of Australia, on the board of No Strings Attached Theatre of Disability, a member of the Arts Centre Melbourne Arts Wellbeing Advisory Group, a Disability Inclusion Facilitator for Purple Orange, and runs her own arts mentoring business, Kick Up The Arts. Andi is an Australia Council for the Arts Future Leader in 2022.
