Maxima Circus and Mandurah Performing Arts Centre presents
CATCH! is an action-packed, interactive adventure for little ones, their families & their friends…that uses balls and play to tell a story about making friends and overcoming your fears.
Circus, theatre & puppetry meet in this high energy, playful and imaginative take on our love of sport and all things sporty. Our cast jump, roll, bounce and throw as they learn to ‘look before they leap’ while ‘having a ball’!! CATCH! is all about making friends and becoming a team.
Olivia is awkward, shy and a little lonely, in fact…she freezes in any spotlight! She is new, she wants to make friends, and most of all she wants to be able to catch a ball!!
Can our plucky heroine outwit WHACK the Ball monster who threatens to bounce her into the side lines? Watch as Olivia turns her world into a game she can play!
Co-created by award-winning Director Sally Richardson with some of our most exciting emerging circus & puppetry, performers & designers, CATCH! is fresh, playful, fun-filled & ‘thoughtful’ circus theatre work for younger audiences & their families that explores our relationship to competition, playing ball & all things sporty.
- Special seating on mats is provided so our youngest audience members can get up front & close to the action.
