The simplicity of a quality mime act, a basic costume, some audience participation makes for a good belly laugh – which Dr Brown Brown Brown Brown Brown and his Singing Tiger… Again! have plenty of. The kids took every opportunity be silly, have some fun and had a great time.
When: until 5 April 2015
Where: Fairfax Studio, Arts Centre, St Kilda Road MELBOURNE
Phil Burgers, an American writer and comedy performer, and Stuart Bowden, an Australian performer, are fresh from the Adelaide fringe festival where they won a “best presentation for children” award.
Dro Brown Brown Brown Brown Brown and his Singing Tiger take the kids on an exciting adventure, and make a story out of packing their suitcase. In the process they made a few adults look silly, make some funny noises, and really get the kids belly laughing, jumping out of their seats and misbehaving. A simple premise for some clever improvisation when the kids get really really out of control. Perhaps even more than expected when staff resort to attempting to reign in the kids. At times the parents, and even the performers, looked perplexed by the kids extreme reactions.
Be prepared to be scared by the jungle animals and make sure you wear shoes. Comedy suitable for the whole family with a few jokes for the adults to enjoy and simple silliness for the littlies as well.
The only down side for parents is how to top that entertainment for the rest of the holidays.
Suitable for ages 4+
