THE LISTIES

Australia’s favourite kidult comedy duo, The Listies, return to the Fest with a brand new Badaption of the Bard. This is Shakespeare Listies style: ninjas, ghosts, swords, dinosaurs and zombies. Hamlet: Prince of Skidmark is a side-splitting extravaganza that shatters the fourth wall and glues it back together with turbo-charge story-telling and silliness. Spoiler alert: everyone dies at the end – including the audience! 

Winner EDINBURGH FRINGE Primary Times Children’s Choice Award in 2019.
Total Sell Outs Melbourne Comedy Festival 2019
Total Sell Outs Edinburgh Fringe 2019, 2017, 2016.
As seen on “The Listies Work for Peanuts” on ABC ME.

In short, it's hilarious

– Sydney Morning Herald

One of the funniest introductions to Shakespeare imaginable.

– Sunday Telegraph

If you want your kids to have fun at the theatre and fall for all its magic, get them to a Listies show... Nobody else makes Shakespeare this fun.
