The Flying Fruit Fly Circus will turn trash into treasure when JUNK hits the high wire at Griffith Regional Theatre next month. 

On Wednesday 11 April, the new production from the Flying Fruit Fly Circus, inspired by real-life regional stories of growing up footloose and feral, in the 1940s.

After sell-out shows in Sydney and Melbourne, the story is about a young boy who stumbles upon a condemned junkyard and its unlikely inhabitants: fun, free-range kids from the 1940s.

Together, they transform the junk into a wondrous playground for the boy to learn how to play, take risks, trust his instincts and surrender to his imagination.

“Everyone loves the Flying Fruit Fly Circus and JUNK will take your breath away with jaw-dropping acrobatics, magical shadow puppetry and world class circus skills from this extraordinary cast of young artists all aged between 10 and 18.”

- Raina Savage, Griffith Regional Theatre Manager

"It explores the question ‘in this day and age, do we over protect our kids?’ and shows what can happen if we learn to let go of fear and embrace our imaginations.”

Prepare to be remind and transformed to a time when a lack of technology and little money did not limit the creativity of children and the amount of fun they could dream up.
