Have you ever wondered where lost toys go?
  • Saturday 27 July 2013

Sunshine Coast Council presents great family entertainment with Fluff - a simple, joyful and humorous tale for children, told with a twist - at Lake Kawana Community Centre at 6pm on 16 October and 10am on 17 October 2013.

Fluff is a delightful story of what happened to a group of mismatched hand-made toys that have unfortunately been lost by the people who cherished them most…but found again by the caring and sweetly nutty Gingham family.

Master of eccentricity and mistress of comedy, Christine Johnston, from the famous cabaret act the Kransky Sisters, has created a delightful show along with dancer Lisa O’Neill and electronica musician Peter Nelson, which touches the hearts of children and their adults.

Enjoy a mix of physical comedy, playful dance, music, voice and whimsical characters playing with old and new technology…and fall in love with the 10 toy “stars” as we see why they came to be lost, before being welcomed into the Gingham’s colourful home.

Join the family on their quest and stretch your imagination in this multi--?media performance featuring Christine Johnston, Lisa O’Neill and Peter Nelson.

Meet Fluff who was dropped under the couch then sucked up by the vacuum cleaner, Squibbly who was abandoned in the gutter by the family dog, and the Disco Frog who got caught in a ceiling fan.

Fluff explores the crossover in children’s lives between new technologies and well-loved, simple, hand-wrought objects.

Bookings are essential and tickets can be purchased in advance from Sunshine Coast Venues and Events website, at the Lake Kawana Community Centre Box Office located at 114 Sportsmans Parade, Bokarina or by calling 5413 1400. Cost to attend is just $15 per person and for a group of four with minimum of two children just $55.
