As silly as they are strong in this extravaganza of organised chaos, these three daring, dynamic Dummies go on a raucous ride of non-stop slapstick, inventive puppetry and imaginative gameplay delivered in signature Dummies style, with enough catchy tunes and pop culture reference to keep the adults entertained.

The girls are on an expedition and you're invited along for the ride. Get ready for circus-filled hilarity as they monkey around the jungle, swing through treetops and skip past foliage. With a rockin' soundtrack, unbelievable acrobatics and trademark frivolity, get ready to rumble with these fierce women! Full of laughs, immersive action and plenty of surprises, don't miss it!

Dummies Corp. founder Jamie Bretman felt they were in a position to nurture incredible women in a heavily male-dominated domain where the industry does not always encourage women to take on the clown role, let alone an entire female ensemble. With a platform to express themselves through comedy, imagination and play, the female influence both on an off stage will have young girls feeling anything is possible.

Ellen Henry, a graduate of Australia's premier circus school NICA discovered circus as a way to explore the capabilities of the human body in a creative way. Her forte is juggling, loop straps and acrobatics. Shona Conacher hula hooped her way around Australia, New Zealand and the UK whilst also displaying her expert aerial silks and table sliding skills. Maya Tregonning, also a NICA graduate, specialised in comedy aerial ladder, foot juggling and group acrobatics and recently completed successful seasons in Woodford, Adelaide, Perth and Melbourne Fringe Festivals with her ensemble devised show Out of this World, a theatrical circus comedy for young audiences.
