Set up camp and stampede into the jungle for an outlandish, circus filled extravaganza


Winning Best Children’s Event award at the Adelaide Fringe Festival 2021, this is an extraordinary adventure you just can’t miss.

Lions and tigers and Dummies, oh my! Set up camp and stampede into the jungle for an outlandish, circus filled extravaganza that will leave you chuckling like a monkey and roaring for more.

Dummies Corp are also running a circus workshop!


Whilst the wearing of masks is not mandatory it is recommended in certain situations by Tasmanian Public Health.  Masks will be available upon entering the venue for those patrons who would like one.  

If you’re unwell, it is recommended that you stay at home, and we look forward to welcoming you at Salamanca Arts Centre another time.
