tonight’s  Harry Potter murder mystery

logo-bloodied-hand-onlyCan’t wait until tonight’s function; I’ll be hosting a special birthday murder mystery dinner at The George Boutique Hotel in Blackheath.

Tonight it’s Harry Pottercide

Who’s the murderer…? Could it be Draco, or Wesley – or perhaps Dumbledore or even Hagrid… who knows!?

The Bucket of GOON!

a-bucket-of-GoonsFor the many Goon Show fans out there, we’ve decided to add some excitement to our upcoming Yulefest Blue Mountains dinner / shows this July.

It’s the Bucket of GOON; what happens is that we ask an audience member to draw a mystery Goon Show episode out of a bucket for the boys to perform.

Once the lads get over the initial leg-trembles, they have only 5 minutes to scramble – sort out their scripts and load-up the sound effects.

We first gave this a whirl in 2015 at a season of shows we played in Sydney… it worked brilliantly, and the added adrenaline spiced up the show for cast and audience alike.

Tickets have been selling extremely well this year, so get in on the fun and book now. We’d love to see you there.

Read about the dinner / show here.

Goon Show LIVE! dinner and show tickets still available for December 17th

What are you waiting for?

The boys of The Goon Show LIVE! have been working hard (if you can describe what they actually do as ‘working’), bringing the best of British Comedy to the stage.

After successful tours to the NSW Central Coast and Sydney throughout 2016, they are returning to where the LIVE! show all began… Katoomba, in the stunning Blue Mountains.

Robin (Spike Milligan) Queree of The Goon Show LIVE! forgot his linesThis here is Robin Queree (a.k.a. Spike Milligan), in a recent show; he’s just realised that it’s his line.

Although they all hold their scripts in-hand, they still manage to lose their place at times. With luck, he’ll remember to bring his script to our show at Hotel Blue on December 17th.

Book Now!

There’s lots of fun promised for parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and other adult hangers-on too, with nursery rhymes from their childhood weaved throughout the story.

New Children’s show in the Blue Mountains

Mother Goose drawingA great new show for the little kids is on in the January 2016 school holidays… Mother Goose in the Blue Mountains.

This wonderful event is to be staged in the beautiful Meadow in the gardens at Leuralla Toy and Railway Museum, one of the most impressive properties in the Blue Mountains. Leuralla’s stunning Meadow is part of the gorgeous 12 acres of beautiful gardens which were laid down at the turn of last century.

This delightful 45 minute show features songs, drums and loads of fun! It’s an interactive theatrical experience for children aged 2 – 6.

Mum, Dad and Grandparents will enjoy the show too – it’s a trip down Memory Lane as we weave nursery rhymes from your own childhood throughout the story.

Tickets are now on sale on the Mother Goose website.

Rave audience reviews for Yulefest Blue Mountains dinner and show

It has been a racy start to the 3rd appearance of The Goon Show LIVE! at the annual Yulefest Blue Mountains. This homage to arguably the greatest British comedy cult ever written, is now already half-way through it’s 2015 season at Katoomba’s Hotel Blue.

As always, the event is attracting Goon fans from around the globe, some of whom tell us they’ve actually planned their holidays around the show’s performance dates – because going for too long without a fix of Goonery is like surgical removal of one’s funny-bone.

What’s equally interesting is the contingent of Goon-virgins who suddenly become converts after attending one of our shows… more CraZy people, just what the world needs!

We are especially chuffed at some the audience reviews we’ve been receiving; we love these gems;

  • Steve wrote  to us saying, “The Goon show live is brilliantly funny. With impeccable timing and great attention to the nuances of the original, this new generation of Goon’s bring the scripts to life in a fun filled tribute to the legendary radio show. This show is not just for Goon’s fans but I would highly recommend it to anyone who loves comedy.”

Then there was this from Colin…

  • “The Show was accurate, as close to the original scripts as possible, if a little ad libbed. Then the original Goons were ad libbed, weren’t they!? The show was very very funny!”

Well, yes Colin, ad-libbing is a sort of Goon-type way of doing things – glad you appreciated it.

We’ve had a quite a few more audience reviews (thank you everyone), and we’ll be posting more up over the next few weeks.

In the meantime, read about this event and grab some tickets – only 4 to go!
