Miss Australia 1963 the loveable Louis Vuitton patron loves Port Fairy so much she has come back and bought with her her “Dingo”. Miss Australia 1963 aka Madge Allseasons is an interactive comedy show where you never know what might happen. Still on the road, suitcases, lipstick and powder packed, the irrepressible Madge AllSeasons is a hard act to tame. She’s worldly, savvy and beware, she’s not afraid to comment on your fashion. This queen of haute couture brings the audience to their knees with a handbag twirling finale.
She creates an exciting and fun atmosphere everywhere she performs, entertaining audiences around the world and dazzling them with her fantastic hula hoop tricks, silly stunts and hilarious audience participation. Tina tops it all off, balanced precariously atop a 6-foot unicycle, launching objects from her foot and catching them on her head. A truly unique show, suitable for all ages.
A comic, a fool, an entertainer, an actor, a puppeteer. He’s weird, whacky, bizarre and extremely funny. He’s a catalyst, a dogalyst; musical, outrageous, challenging and he is FUN! His show varies from traditional pantomime pieces to magic, chapeaugraphy (hat art), playing the autoharp and puppetry.
