6 – 20 April 2019

Have you ever flown on the back of a giant pigeon? Are you strong enough to rescue Dr AudiYO! from a stinky mud pie? Will you know which record to play when The Beast arrives?

ALPHABET SOUP is a beatbox-filled, choose-your-own-adventure for the whole family. Directed by acclaimed theatre-maker/director Dr. Miles O’Neil (one third of MICF Golden Gibbo Winners, The Suitcase Royale) and created and performed by theatre-maker/comedian Holly Austin, ALPHABET SOUP promises to be a truly unique and wondrous, music-filled experience, perfect for adventurous children and childlike adults.

ALPHABET SOUP follows Dr AudiYO!, a beatboxing superhero/clown, as she sets off on a surreal adventure to slay The Beast, who’s on a rampage to silence the city. Dr AudiYO! must use her ‘magic bumbag’ and enlist the help of the audience to save their city.

“Think a kid-friendly white girl Reggie Watts meets Mr Bean thrown down a rabbit hole with Alice and Dr Seuss.” Austin says. “Alphabet Soup will have your imagination buzzing and your inner kid dazzled and giggling.”

“Austin has a kind of genius in her performance, a happy, infectious tenacity. She’s like Sally Hawkins in Happy-Go-Lucky or Audrey Tautou in Amélie."
