THE MAGIC CHICKEN

09 July 2014 – 13 July 2014

Venue: Studio
Presented by: Sydney Opera House

Join us for this gastro-comic delight!

Description

Suitable for children 5+

Devour a slapstick treat of culinary chaos: two chefs in a Seuss-style kitchen mix up a hilarious concoction of punk-panto physical comedy, live music and puppetry.

As our half-baked heroes juggle pots, pans and snarling customers, their lives are interrupted by a mysterious feathered friend… the orders are coming thick and fast, but can our dumb waiters stop the caper from turning to custard?

Join us for this gastro-comic delight, sure to deliver belly laughs to parents and children alike!
