Presenting the Tinkles

Click for big version

Written by Willow Newey and Kate McGill

23 January - 2 February, 8.30pm
BATS Theatre, 1 Kent Tce

Meet Big Tones; an aging, ginger-haired 80's boybander trying to get back into entertainment scene with a revolutionary idea: Creating a kiwi children's entertainment group to rival Hi5!

Presenting the Tinkles at BATS from 23 Jan are: aging rocker Dean, Ozzie pop-idol wannabe Meadow, earnest Miriam and bitter thespian Thom and follow the group's struggles, from their humble beginnings in town halls to the dizzying heights of Good Morning and beyond!

Facing nepotism, an indecent proposal, a shapely real estate agent. and the shock introduction of talent, that's Tinkle number five. Will Big Tones' manufactured kiddie-pop creation make it to the top of the charts. or should he just leave it to the Aussies?

"Presenting the Tinkles is a hilarious colourful children's' musical definitely for ADULTS ONLY! It's for every parent and babysitter who's ever been subjected to kiddies 'bands' on repeat and every adult who's ever secretly sung along as well as every adult who was ever a kid singing along too" say creators Kate McGill and Willow Newey, New Zealand's own Kath and Kim-esque comedy due. Mockutheatre at its best, find out and have a giggle at the goings-on behind the scenes in the Tinkle towers of the 'band'.

Presenting the Tinkles is the madness, mayhem and mirth of children's theatre performers!

Roll on up . . . Introducing the musical stylings of the Tinkles!
