Love, romance and fun with The Little Fish at Kay Bros

UPDATE: Due to the extremely high temperatures this Saturday, the performance will not be conducted outside. It will be in the winery barrel halls at Kay Brothers where Macbeth was performed by Little Fish.

Patrons are still invited to bring their picnic food and enjoy sitting at the long tables.

A selection of fine wines will be available as no BYO is permitted.

Drawing on the success of their wonderful outdoor production of Love's Labour's Lost, at the McLaren Vale Information Centre, The Little Fish are excited about their final afternoon picnic performance of what is possibly Shakespeare's strangest (almost) love story. What adds to their excitement is their production will be performed on Valentine's Day, among the vines at Kay Brothers, McLaren Vale.

This will be the last opportunity to see this lively production in this ideal, beautiful picnic setting - outdoors, among the vines. The initial production proved very popular with audiences with a stage that stretched for 60 metres across the green lawns and went back some 90 metres taking in the vines with the distant stunning scenery of the rolling hills of the Southern Vales.

Kay Brothers offers the same natural scenery and the opportunity for the audience to also feel a part of the theatrical experience as the cast mingles amongst members of the audience during their performance.

Under the direction of Russell Slater, these dedicated young actors from the senior students of Southern Youth Theatre Ensemble (SYTE) are highly entertaining as the cast achieve their objective to provide a hilariously funny experience that features skilled singing and music that is essential to the play's complete theatrical experience. Phoebe Shaw, Amelia Lorien Dembowski and Aiken Newnham from the theatre group joined Ellie Cooper in the studio and performed The Cuckoo and The Owl live.

Amelia Lorien Dembowski performed the character Moth and performed the additional singing, arranging each song with assistance from Aiken Newhmann. Amelia returned to the theatre after taking a break 2 years ago, performing in The Taming of the Shrew with The Little Fish. During this time, her passion for the theatre and singing has really come alive, and she will return with The Little Fish in one of her favourite plays, Antony and Cleopatra this coming winter.

New to The Little Fish is experienced actor and director Damien White, who performed Armado and obviously really enjoyed the opportunity to perform his first Shakespeare production.

The picnic area will be open from 2.00 pm.

The performance begins at 3.00 pm.

Bookings are essential for this Adelaide Fringe Event.

Please note: No BYO alcohol, but the award winning cellar door is open. Make yourself comfortable with your picnic rugs, low chairs and bean bags. It is recommended that you bring a blanket, just in-case it comes in cool.
