If you are looking for something fun to do these school holidays, then head to the Arts Centre Melbourne’s Fairfax Studio from July 11 – 15 and you could go on a hunt for the legendary Snark.
If you, like us, have no idea what a Snark is or what it looks like, it might help to know that it comes from the magical imagination of Alice in Wonderland creator Lewis Carroll.
Don’t worry, you won’t be hunting on your own! You will be joined five high-energy actors and a puppet who will take you on a musical comedy adventure in The Hunting of the Snark.
On the journey to Snark Island you will meet a Boy, his Banker father who is so rich he puts diamonds on his cereal, a knitting Beaver, a funny Baker who can’t remember his name, a crazy Butcher who has an appetite for exotic animals and a Bellman who is the world expert on Snarks!
You will also get to know some larger-than-life characters such as the colourful Jub Jub Bird, a tricksy Bandersnatch who will steal literally anything (including your father’s favourite underwear), and the terrifying Boojum who with one touch ‘can softly and suddenly vanish you away’. Luckily for us, we survived and we’re sure you will too!
The Hunting of the Snark is designed for four to 94-year-olds. It is funny, witty and will entertain the kids and provide animated tales to tell for show and tell next week!
