The Brothers Stachamoose
Performed in the Performance Studio Sunday 4.00-4.50
Are back with some old and some new theatrical delights from their intrepid world, These suspiciously similar-looking brothers display an energetic mix of physical comedy and manual dexterity using a nicely balanced blend of mischievous humour and accomplished puppeteer skills. The show is rounded out by – keeping it in the family – with a special guest performance provided our local family members, after all we’re all related. And it was as nice a slice of surreal humour as you’re likely to witness this year.
