The long weekend is almost here (hooray)! On a more pressing note, this means it’s the time to unleash your fabulous self and be immersed in the BEST of the fringe.
Like previous weeks, Fresh has given a shout out to some of the wonderful smaller acts that may not be on your radar. This week is no exception, and we’ve got three ripper shows for you to catch!
Show Name: The Quizzical Mr Jeff
Venue: Pastoral Lounge, Gluttony
Dates: 5th of March – 17th of March @ 6pm
Join The Quizzical Mr Jeff on an illusionary adventure, filled with dazzle, charm and entertainment! The two-man crew will have hats dancing around Mr Jeff’s body, crystal balls flowing through his hands and a myriad of jackets, canes and bottles springing to life. But how does he do it? I need answers! The shows slick refined style sits in a world of vaudeville, bespoke props and delightful soundtracks.

Show Name: Nice Boy Seeks Kind Audience
Venue: National Wine Centre
Dates: 5th – 9th of March @ 7pm
The Sydney based ‘nice boy’ (aka Ben Kochan) will bring a mix of stand-up, props and even an occasional song. In the meantime, he’ll cover everything from eggs, being an online foot model, falling down an internet worm hole, his narrow head and rekindling a relationship with his son. Ben has toured every festival around Australia, and even opened for the Workaholics when they came down under. That’s a CV I can certainly get behind, and you should too.
Tickets are available here, and you can snag them for just $15. This show is only on for TWO MORE DAYS (Saturday and Sunday night), so get in quick!
Show Name: A Thousand Cranes
Venue: The Parks Theatre
Dates: 5th – 11th of March @ 11am, 1:30pm and 4pm
Following a five-star debut and being awarded Best Fringe Children’s Musical in 2018, A Thousand Cranes is back to send goosebumps down your spine. The contemporary dance and original music tells the true story of 12-year-old Sadako Sasaki after the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima changed everything. The all Adelaide production team pays homage to the girl who sparked an incredible movement of peace.
