4 Shows To Take Your Nan To
One of the things we love about FRINGE WORLD is that it caters for every age – there is something for absolutely everyone from the young to the young at heart!
Give your Nan a break from her stories on the tele and treat her to a show or two at Fringe – you will be the fave grandchild for years to come!
1. Men of the West – Goodbye and Hello: The First Comeback Tour
If your Nan likes bands and beards, this one will be right up her alley. The Men of the West are a behatted group of blokes with beards at odds with their place in the world. Sounds deep, but it’s heaps of fun.
Big voices and beautiful harmonies with a range of songs sung a cappella from Georgian harmonies to recognisable pop hits. Don’t forget about the hilarious shenanigans!
2. Michael Griffiths: Songs By Kylie
Get Nan to step back in time and do the locomotion with this celebration of Aussie pop princess Kylie Minogue. WAAPA graduate Michael Griffiths explores the songs and stories of this Australian treasure.
This could be an awesome trip down memory lane – Nan might not have spun her Kylie records for a while! You might even discover a couple of Kylie’s golden oldies too.
3. One Sky Many Stories
This unique collaboration between Indigenous Arrernte songwriter Warren H. Williams and The Griffyn Ensemble is sure to be a beautifully dreamy evening with a starry theme.
Have a bit of a bonding sesh with Nan as you are transported to a starry night in outback Central Australia through the magical combination of stories and music from the sky, combining music, film and astronomy.
4. Eleanor’s Story: American Girl in Hitler’s Germany
Check out this internationally critically acclaimed performance that has taken audiences and critics by storm around the world. It is unlike anything else you are likely to see at FRINGE WORLD.
Ingrid Garner wrote and performs the theatrical adaption of her grandmother Eleanor Ramrath Garner’s award-winning memoir, detailing her youth as an American caught in WWII Berlin. Prepare to be moved.
