Arriving at The Arts Centre Gold Coast these summer holidays, Fluff: A Story of Lost Toys is a simple, joyful and humorous piece of musical theatre, told with a twist!
The Gingham family is very concerned for all of the lost and discarded toys in the world.
They travel all around to retrieve them and bring them to their colourful home of odd shaped boxes where they welcome them to the family. Each toy is introduced one-by-one and, after seeing a slide show of how they came to be lost, is given a vocal sound, a movement, a piece of music, a nightlight and a nice comfy bed.
Sound intriguing? According to Cre8ion’s Theresa Famularo, Producer of Fluff: A Story of Lost Toys, this is a show that will delight both the young and the young at heart.
Occasionally you discover a work that is unique and wonderful, and you are compelled to bring it to a global audience. Unearthing Fluff: A Story of Lost Toys was one of these moments. The production is a little offbeat with a strong comedic edge, magical, playful and, most importantly, told by engaging all elements of the theatre’ said Theresa.
This show has been loved by children 3 -12 years of age from the stages of Brisbane to Broadway in New York. It has been acclaimed for its originality, warmth, clever use of comedy and extraordinary combination of song, movement, sampling, projection and audience participation. Magical, playful and with a strong comedic edge, this is a show the whole family can enjoy.
