This is a story all about how the scouts got flip turned
There's something inherently romantic about the notion of sitting around a campfire. Perhaps someone is strumming an acoustic guitar, another roasting marshmallows on a stick. You only have to close your eyes and be taken to that place, feeling the warmth of the fire on your front, that rustic smokey smell while your bum goes numb from sitting on a log.
It's the perfect environment to tell a story. No distractions other than the dancing of the flames to give a visual anchor as your brain listens intently to what others have to say. It's something that the scouts knew and apparently Big Fork Theatre knew it too.
As such, Brisbane's most exciting improv theatre company and the Tarragindi Scouts have teamed up for a night of yarns at this year's Anywhere Theatre Festival.
Drawing its inspiration from the great pastime of sitting around a campfire with a few mates telling tales into the early hours of the morning, the motto of 'Be Prepared' will not be applicable this time around.
Blending off-the-cuff stories and inspired improvised comedy, audiences are guaranteed that no two shows will be the same. Around the Campfire is suitable for all ages and the venue is wheelchair accessible.
