Dynamic Australian youth circus Flying Fruit Fly Circus presents their latest show for all ages, a spellbinding playground adventure set in a junkyard inhabited by children from the 1940s.

An ordinary boy, covered head-to-toe in safety gear, prepares to ride his bicycle. Then, out of nowhere, he is sucked back in time to the 1940s. There, in an abandoned junkyard, he meets a gang of kids wild at heart, whose boundless enthusiasm urges him to play as children once did: without inhibition and free from adult supervision.

Propelled by a cast of talented young performers, this vibrant take on childhood tumbles headfirst into a world of play and imagination through circus skills and acrobatics, beautiful shadow puppetry and a moving sense of nostalgia for a time when young people were encouraged to take risks and weren’t wrapped in cotton wool.

Bring your children and embolden them to invent their own fun – and maybe inspire them to unleash their inner circus acrobat, too.

“Exhilarating, inspirational and fun.” — ArtsHub
