Cardigan Coriander-Turner is a regular superhero who does regular superhero stuff, like using her powers to defeat baddies and wearing her undies on the outside. And she’s just been given a mission impossible: save her pet snake, Trix, from certain tragedy. But one visit to school – AKA The Real World – is about to change everything. Turns out Cardi's not really a superhero after all. She's just a little girl, with zero powers. How’s she going to save the day now?
Featuring hilarious clowning, backyard acrobatics, original songs, dance breaks AND fabulous costumes, MAD AS A CUTE SNAKE is about having the courage to be yourself – whatever that may be!
Please note that MAD AS A CUTE SNAKE runs for a week after Melbourne Fringe closes. See theatreworks.org.au for more info.
This project is supported by the City of Port Phillip Cultural Development Fund and amplified by Debbie Dadon as part of Melbourne Fringe’s ShowSupport.
