ANIMATION MUTATION Season: Monday 28 April - Saturday 3 May Time: 6.30pm Tickets: $14 waged $10 concession Local stand up surrealist Guy Capper interviews mutants on a projected video screen. This show will be refreshing to anyone who has been in a logical environment all day - if you want to see a show that involves little bunnies hugging photos of deep sea squirrels then you will be pleasantly surprised. So come along and lose your mind for just an hour or if you don't want to lose it hold on until the show is over and then go outside and do impressions of baby sea lions on heat.
