Suburban Circus

Book Music and Lyrics by

A short show, an award-winning musical revue staged from New Zealand to New York.  65 mins, speeches, songs, mime all celebrating life in the suburbs. The garbos are the jugglers, the traffic cop is the clown, etc. This variety show has been staged in tents, the back of trucks, halls and theatres by all adults, teens and kids. Bring your local swimming pool, school crossing and supermarket to a stage near you. A cinch to rehearse and stage.

An amazing spectacle. A must for any school Quarry Hill PS

Highly recommended as a musical in which to introduce children to theatre Eastmont PS

Very colourful and enjoyed by all Camberwell CEGGS

A terrific musical for kids on camp. The show was a hit! Stonybrook Camp New York
