Get set for mischief and mayhem! Children Are Stinky is a rollicking mashup of comedy, circus and music that feels (and looks) like a giant party, and it’s hitting the Laycock Street Community Theatre stage this July.

In Children Are Stinky, a pair of talented performers try to prove that kids are stinky, but they only succeed in proving that kids are truly awesome. Along the way, you’ll witness incredible mouth-dropping acrobatics, daredevil tricks, juggling, hula-hooping and a heap of silly fun. There’s a tonne of audience interaction and lots of kids are invited to step onto the stage and prove that children aren’t “lazy, uncoordinated and lacking in imagination”, as these very silly circus performers claim.

This show is a treat for both kids and their adults. With a nod to the ’90s, plenty of parental jokes and a soundtrack that includes The Prodigy, Gorillaz and The Spice Girls, parents won’t be able to help but sing along (and get all nostalgic).

But don’t just take our word for it: take it from everyone! Children Are Stinky has been touring the world with sell-out seasons since it first debuted at The Melbourne Fringe in 2015, and it’s been awarded “best children’s show” in Adelaide, Perth and Edinburgh!

Grab your tickets quick-smart: this one is sure to sell out!
