Something for the young 'uns
Adelaide Fringe Festival 2019 proudly showcases the world's finest performers and offers a stellar program of events, including cabaret, variety, comedy, dance, circus, physical and more. There's something for absolutely everyone - including the littlies!

Check out our top picks for families this year!

Did You Hear What I Saw? is a World Premiere featuring Tom Skelton and Tom GK.

Tom and Tom have been best friends for 9,855 days and counting. They've walked miles through blizzards, run amok in city streets and been superheroes of the playground. Their amazing bond was strengthened as Tom Skelton lost his sight and Tom GK his hearing. This is their unique story of lasting friendship, with songs and silliness along the way.

Tom Skelton is a character comedian and improviser, who happens to be registered blind. He's had four smash hits at Edinburgh Fringe: Blind Eye Spy, Blind Man's Bluff, Foolball and 2061. He stars in Adventures of the Improvised Sherlock Holmes and is a member of UK improv comedy group Racing Minds.

Tom GK grew up obsessed with music and became a successful music critic for London's Daily Telegraph. He then began losing his hearing and was diagnosed with a genetic disease, neurofibromatosis. He now writes and performs about it.

"Inventive and very enjoyable" Mirror, UK

"Deliciously talented," The Guardian, UK

"Exceptionally funny" Weekend Notes, Australia

"Inventive and very enjoyable" ★★★★ Mirror, UK

"Undoubtedly funny" The West Australian, WA

"An extraordinary performer", SA

Did you Hear what I Saw? features as part of Ferguson Room at The National Wine Centre Adelaide Fringe program on 16, 17 & 24 February, at 3.20pm.

Tickets are now on sale through and priced from $12.00 to $65.00.


Another highlight for 2019 is Aaaand Now For MORE Kiddo Kaos!!, featuring members of British improv comedy superstars Racing Minds and Adventures of the Improvised Sherlock Holmes, who'll bring a mad mash of improv games, all with different crazy twists and driven by suggestions from the young 'uns.

Stuffed with hilarious characters and lots of daft jokes, this mischievous show is whatever the kids want it to be! Expect improvised mayhem, physical comedy, music and merriment for ages 7 12 and adults too!

"My six-year-old son and I were both in hysterics at the show we attended which was entirely due to the talent of the ensemble rather than any luck or divine intervention. So, whilst no two shows could possibly bare the same outcomes, I'd find it impossible to conceive that each performance would be anything less than hilarious" Australia

"Impressive improvisational talent ... fast-paced, inventive, jolly good fun" The West Australian

"Script-less brilliance, crowd captivated from start to finish" Three Weeks, Edinburgh

With the help of their junior conspirators, these dashing adventurers create a show that is just as entertaining for adults in TWO venues: Gallery Room at The National Wine Centre (16-17 Feb, 23-24 Feb, 2:00pm) and The Parlour at Stirling Fringe (23-24 Feb, 11:00am).

Tickets are now on sale through and priced from $18.00 to $70.00.
