A madcap musical adventure for families. WhirlyGig is four brave musicians, 30 instruments and countless musical puzzles to solve. Join us for an extraordinary theatrical experience where music will happen in ways you have never seen before. Musical maverick Daniel Padden comes together with award-winning Red Bridge Arts and Catherine Wheels to celebrate the thrills and spills of making music. For age 6+.
“A completely original sonic experience” JS Bach
★★★★ “WhirlyGig’s topsy-turvy vibrancy and playfulness with melody has the potential to capture young creative minds, and to rejuvenate a passion for a pure form of cobbled together music for anyone” The Skinny
★★★★ “An impressive feat of perfect musical and comic timing” The Scotsman
★★★★ “WhirlyGig has the atmospheric charm of a film by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and the craziness of Monty Python. Part circus, part concert, it is a wonderfully original piece of children’s musical theatre” Sunday Herald Age suitability 5+
