Short Reviews

...the best children's theatre company in the country...
The Australian
★★★★★ Hiccup is truly an ensemble piece, with stellar actors and production team. It is a welcome and joyous return to theatre for Australian children and their families
Glam Adelaide
Hiccup is a winner... The kids were with them every step of the way, singing and clapping along, cheering the triumphs and lamenting the disappointments, and loving every bit of it

Selling Points

  • Created by two beloved South Australian artists
  • Another celebrated puppet work from the award-winning Windmill Theatre Company – the producers of Grug, Grug and the Rainbow and Beep
  • Features gorgeous native Australian animals as characters (Emu, Quokka and Koala)
  • Hilarious and silly theatrical experience that will appeal to the whole family
  • A different offering – a truly unique show for families that blends left of field humour with psychedelic rock. An aesthetic departure from a lot of work for children of this age group.
  • Super catchy songs that will have audiences dancing in their seats
