26 November to 10 December, 2016

The hilariously side-splitting Avenue Q is set to return to Perth for a strictly limited season this November, bringing audiences a show that is part flesh, part felt and packed with heart.
Show Details

Winner of the TONY® TRIPLE CROWN for BEST MUSICAL, BEST SCORE and BEST BOOK, Avenue Q, directed by Peter J Snee, is an irreverently witty and outright uproarious insight into a world where Sesame Street-esque puppets rub shoulders with humans.

This is a puppet show; however, make no mistake, this is not your average kids puppet show.

“This will have you laughing out loud the entire day” - Broadway Box

Join us as we follow the life of Princeton, a bright-eyed college graduate navigating his way through the multicultural, and at times raucous neighbourhood, Avenue Q in New York City.

"They may have no legs of their own, but darned if those fuzzy creatures aren’t still standing, long after more full-bodied competition has bitten the dust" - The New York Times

Be prepared to be transported into a world of puppet debauchery, where puppets and humans mingle with gregarious consequences.  From sexual congress, failed childhood stardom and excessive drinking to finding your purpose in life, Avenue Q hilariously navigates adult life from a puppet’s point of view - no strings attached!

Arj Barker - The Classics - 08 September 2016
Don't miss this opportunity to catch Arj serve up a selection of his all-time greatest hits. This will be a night where he presents many of his classic routines by popular demand (and a few others by unpopular demand).
Show Details

Fresh off the back of a massive US tour with his pals, The Flight of the Concords (he starred as 'Dave' in their hugely popular T.V. series) Arj returns to our shores to prove once again why he is 'the American we actually like' and one of Australia's favourite comedians full-stop. So round up the gang and prepare to laugh yourself silly as Arj Barker presents.... The Classics.

In recent years, Arj has spent more time in our country than his own and has come to understand our culture perhaps better than we understand it ourselves. His stand-up is both insightful and pointed, like a mind-reading thumb tack, if there was one of those.

Since winning the coveted Perrier Best Newcomer Award in 1997, Arj has firmly established himself as one of the golden boys on the international comedy circuit. He has performed massive sell out seasons at the Adelaide Fringe Festival and Melbourne International Comedy Festival, on a number of occasions being the highest selling act at the festival.

Arj has made numerous appearances on late night talk shows, including Letterman and Conan O'Brian, as well as starring in his own Comedy Central half hour special on HBO. He is a favourite on Australian TV having appeared on Thank God You're Here, Rove, Spicks & Specks, The Project, Good News Week and Have You Been Paying Attention.
