Fringe REVIEW: Something in the Water - For Kids - ★★★

Something in the Water - For Kids

Children's Show (Puppetry, Clown)

Scantily Glad Theatre

Age: 8+

Venue: Online

Dates: until 29th August

Mix Up Theatre Reviews: ★★★

Grumms doesn't see themselves in the Barbies or GI Joes they play with. Instead, they find solace in their superhero comic books. But when Grumms transforms into a horrible squid monster (think Creature from the Black Lagoon meets The Muppets) they must hide their secret identity and disguise as a 'normal, human woman'. Superhero or horrible monster? You decide. 'Inventive, unpredictable and seriously wacky, ripped from the pages of a superhero cartoon comic book' (Advertiser). Winner: Best Theatre, Adelaide Fringe, 2021.

Callum - ★★★★★

“I like it because the squid was on her butt!'

Stewart - ★★★★

“A really cool idea with a great performer, some neat shadow puppetry tricks and a chance to see a squid butt. The audio on our screening wasn't great so it may have been a bit hard to follow for some kids - but then the story was pretty out there as well. A fun show though, watch it at home!"
