AN OUTRAGEOUS NEW PUPPET SHOW FOR ADULTS PERFORMED BY MASTER PUPPETEER MURRAY RAINE. THIS HILARIOUS FIFTY MINUTE SCI-FI CABARET BURLESQUE LANDS AT FISH CREEK MEMORIAL HALL IN JANUARY, AND WILL MAKE YOU QUESTION EVERYTHING YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW ABOUT PUPPETS, BURLESQUE, AND ALIENS.
Grab your mates, bring a picnic and some wine and come along to Fish Creek Memorial Hall and be captivated by this camp theatrical, retro musical show. This is one “adults only” puppet show you do not want to miss.
“They Came From Uranus” tells a story of lust, sex and perversion. Belonging to the oeuvre of the best B-grade trashy sci-fi movies our tale follows a woman’s courage as she saves the world from an alien invasion and restores universal faith in the great responsibility of our most precious of assets… social influencers.
This unique show is performed in its own ornate miniature burlesque theatre and features a dazzling array of shadow puppetry, multi-media projections and "Humanettes", a rarely seen form of puppetry which comprises the puppeteers head with a puppet’s body.
Director James Welsby and his cast of 20 Humanettes (all played by Murray Raine) are lavishly costumed by Isaac Lummis, and introduce us to a world of debauched aliens and glittering burlesque beauties. This show seeks to morph the real into the ridiculous, and to redefine indecency.
Disclaimer: This show features strong adult themes and not suitable for Kiddies, the faint hearted or church social groups.
