Are you ready for some splash-tastic fun with the family?
Roll up, roll up, the Splash Test Dummies are in town and they will be on patrol at Riverside Theatres during Sydney Festival 2019. This trio of circus-skilled, comedic lifeguards will be bringing their unique brand of family fun to the stage in their new show, a fun and lively aquatic adventure featuring plenty of mischief on the beach.

From the creators of Trash Test Dummies, this new show incorporates water-themed skits as well as the circus skills and theatrics these performers are known for. Think giant beach balls, pool noodles, bubble machines and water pistols and you are on the right track.

Performers Jamie Bretman, Jack Coleman and Simon Wright are all highly skilled circus performers and know how to keep the kids and the adults laughing throughout the entire show. They have won numerous awards including Best Children's Presentation at Adelaide Fringe in 2016 and 2015.

You can expect to be both entertained and impressed with acrobatics, juggling and human balancing acts as well as plenty of slapstick comedy and audience participation (consider this a heads up for those who find themselves sitting in the front row - you may be in the splash zone!)

If you've not had the pleasure of attending one of their shows before here's a sneak peek:

This show is guaranteed to be fast, thrilling and filled with lots of laughs. The show runs for approximately one hour, with no interval, and is suitable for the whole family.

Splash Test Dummies can be seen at Riverside Theatres in Parramatta from 11 - 13th January 2019. For show times and to book tickets please click here.
