FRINGE WORLD performers road-tripped across Western Australia in February 2016 with a Kids SPECTACULAR that was set to delight families in three great venues across the Goldfields-Esperance region. Ravensthorpe was one of these lucky venues and the show did not disappoint when it was held on Sunday February 14th at the Ravensthorpe Town Hall, proudly supported by the Ravensthorpe Regional Arts Council.

Over 80 audience members enjoyed the Kids SPECTACULAR which featured a delightfully hand-picked bunch of crazy FRINGE WORLD Festival favourites, including the Big Bubble Show, Arrr We There Yet?, and Luke Joseph Ryan.

The Ravensthorpe Regional Arts Council also sponsored a free acrobatics workshop before the show which was ran by members of Head First Acrobats, a Melbourne based entertainment company; offering amazing acrobatic entertainment for theatre, corporate, festivals and street events. Nearly 30 children aged five to twelve years participated in an hour long session of fun, interactive games and acrobatics skills! The kids then got to watch the guys from Head First Acrobats perform in “Arrrr we there yet?” as part of the Fringeworld Kids Spectacular Show! It was a fantastic opportunity for our local youngsters to be active in an engaging and unique way.

A highlight of the show was young Taylah Wisewould being the lucky chosen audience member who was invited up on stage to be placed inside a giant bubble as part of Dr Hubble’s Big Bubble Show!

Tickets for the RRAC’s next show ‘Everything Must Go’ will be on sale soon at the Ravensthorpe and Hopetoun CRC’s. The show will be held at the Jerdacuttup Town Hall on Wednesday March 9th @ 7pm. This is a show not to miss: a one woman comedy creation around the hilarious character Nancy Brown. Nancy delights the audience with show and tell, drawing out family stories from the items she is selling in her garage sale, as well as highlighting her own original take on the world. Directed by three-time Barry Award nominee Damian Callinan and performed by character comedian and writer Rachel Leary.
