Magic McMagicface is a masterful showing of an array of magic tricks and performance which will leave you in awe of Rob Ellinger’s skill, as well as possibly walking away with a transference of some of his love for magic.
The diversity of all the bodies on stage was fabulous, and the athleticism was something to behold. Although Burlesque Idol may have been a one-off show, Fringe is the perfect vehicle to showcase some of the art forms’ best in local and international talent.
Gumbo Ya Ya and The Band Of Simple Dreams, took to the stage at Norwood Live to deliver their particular brand of fun to a large crowd of music fans who turned up for a chance to enjoy some Van Morrison & Linda Ronstadt classics.
The thing that really stood out about Shit-faced Shakespeare: Hamlet was actually its delivery of the story (Hamlet) and its actors.

The portrayal of the story was actually delivered quite well amongst all of the alcohol-induced ridiculousness and buffoonery!
The world’s most dangerous ukulele band, the Ukulele Death Squad, perform at the Regal Theatre Kensington as part of the Adelaide Fringe to tell the tale of the late Bruce Riley – ‘The Squad Father’
Oscillating between the ridiculous (you will have Natalie Imbruglia’s Torn running through your head for day) to the sublime (you will also never look at a keg of beer in the same way), the slapstick element of this frenetic performance does not detract from the sheer force of talent of this incredible crew.
Raw and inviting, Nina Oyama is ‘Doing Me’ Right Now is an homage to being 26, bisexual, part-Japanese, a “lefty snowflake” and living in Australia.
Enter with no expectations, leave covered in suds and with new found proclivities for kissing and breaking through your comfort zone.
Rebel is an enjoyable show – the pacing is good, the costumes are impressive, and the performance has plenty of heart.
Science Vs Magic is a fantastic children’s show, with each element crossing over and combining to make a well-executed 45 minutes of education, and, most importantly, fun.
