Frank’s Survival Guide | Adelaide Fringe 2015


Frank’s Survival Guide

Frank the Chicken may be funny and fearless now, but he wasn’t always like that.

Frank embarks on an impossible adventure with one friend, a bit of luck and a mysterious, unpredictable and chickeny power. You won’t believe how this slightly grumpy chicken became the mighty rooster and freedom fighter you see today.

Frank’s Survival Guide follows a young roosters struggle to live free range in an everything-eat-chicken world. A poetic fusion of televised and live puppetry which will beguile humans aged 4 to 12 years and beyond. Carnivores welcome.

The latest solo work and brainchild of puppeteer Hamish Fletcher (Men of Steel and ABC TV’s Hoot The Owl).

“Fusing together live and animated story creates a truly experiential environment for a young audience. This show will bring all those fantastic ideas and images right up to their very noses and get them on their toes.” says Hamish

WINNER Best On-Air Host or Hosting Team – International Kidscreen Awards” – James Rees and Hamish Fletcher (Giggle and Hoot).

WINNER Festival Directors’ Award – Melbourne International Comedy Festival (Men Of Steel).

Hamish spent many years studying and perfecting his puppetry to bring a unique traverse of live theatre experience and practice in television puppetry. He spent a number of years in Sydney at ABC Children’s Television, on Giggle and Hoot, developing much loved character Hoot The Owl.

A quirky and infinitely awkward soundtrack by Eamon McNealis, inspired story-telling guidance from Nancy Black and marvellous, hand-crafted puppets and animation by Hamish Fletcher.

‘It’s all so beautiful and crazily inventive”  The Australian
