Hiccup! from Windmill Theatre Company is a show for families with children aged 4 years and up. The South Australian theatre company, already known to audiences with their award-winning puppet works Grug, Grug and the Rainbow and Beep, now present their latest work of art with Hiccup! by Jude Henshall and Ellen Steele.
Combined with masterful puppets, colourful sets and rollicking music, Hiccup is great entertainment for the entire family.
It’s a perfect, balmy night in the outback. A sleep-deprived camper, a cheeky quokka and an emu with a penchant for creating wild inventions, awake to discover that a koala has come down with a stubborn and ear-shatteringly loud case of the hiccups.
The three embark on an epic journey through the night that sees them frantically eat, sing and invent their way towards a cure before the sun comes up. Hiccup is a hilarious rocking musical extravaganza about working together, finding friendship and how to, once and for all, stop the hiccups.
Before we started writing “Hiccup!, we knew we wanted to bring a contemporary Australian perspective to a puppet show for children,” said Jude and Ellen. “We wanted to speak directly to Australian children and reflect back to them their environment and the incredible animals which inhabit it.”
