The Anywhere Theatre Festival is one that excites, captivates and intrigues audiences with something out of the ordinary. If this sounds like something that you might enjoy, then mark 7 to 18 May on your calendar. Expect passionate theatre performances at bookshops, parks, churches, sheds, cafes, studios and even hair salons. If it's unconventional, nontraditional and unusual, then you'll experience it at the Festival.
There are plenty of events to suit anyone and everyone, but here are a few of my highlights below.
Wumblebutt Your kids will love Wumblebutt. Dress up as your favourite fantasy character and head to the Roma Street Parkland for this hilarious comedy. Follow the old wizard on his journey to find a pair of golden underpants.
