The Funatorium: Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

December 20, 2016 Whats On No Comments Email Email

Hats on! Tea Poured! Silly Faces Ready! This Summer the Flamboyant Flamingo herself, Monica Trapaga, invites you and your little hatters to the maddest party in town when the Sydney Opera House hosts a tea party with a twist – The Funatorium.

Directed by former Circus Oz Artistic Director, Mike Finch, The Funatorium is a stellar collection of top talent from the worlds of circus and cabaret. Led by Monica Trapaga, this is an all-star cast of circus luminaries. From the fiendish precision juggling of everyday objects by Mr Daniel Gorski and comic hula stylings of international festival comedianne Eloise Green to the incredible hand-balances of Casey Douglas and the aerial surrealism of Marianna Joslin. With a finale framed by the extraordinary strength and nerve of a man called Mozes, a handpicked cast of eccentrics will turn the feverish delirium of Lewis Carroll into, as Alice might say, the stupidest tea-party ever!

Inspired by Lewis Carroll’s classic tale, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the Funatorium will immerse little guests in an enthralling cabaret where everything is nonsense and nothing is what it isn’t. If you believe in as many as six impossible things before breakfast, let Monica and her troupe of weird and wonderful characters help you navigate The Funatorium.

The Funatorium: Mad Hatter’s Tea Party is part of Sydney Opera House’s kids and families summer programming, including the warm-hearted, witty family play Emily Brown and the Thing (4-15 January), adventurer and wildlife expert Steve Backshall in Deadly 60: Pole to Pole (7-8 January) and Roald Dahl‘s classic book George’s Marvellous Medicine, which is bounding off the page in a spectacular new live show (17-25 January).
