  • This play has been running for 25 years and expertly utlilized audience participation. Actors alternate apparently but our evening was brilliant.  more »
  • What a delightful production that has been running for 25 years. A two-person cast then adds in dozens of kids and adults from the audience. The show is fast paced and full of jokes and stories.
  • Hats off to the 2 guys that showed in the performance. It was as expected, I'm 35 with 2 kids under 10 and am glad I'd had a few glass of wine before hand. Ballarat, light spectacular show at Sovereign Hill was just as exciting. Thank god they make alcohol.
