La Mama Theatre
The Travelling Medicine Show
Rejoice as you partake in the phenomenon of the Porcelain Punch Miracle Cure, the extraordinary elixir of Immortality. Curer of incurable conditions, bestower of beauty and extender of the under endowed. Experience amazing acts, fantastic feats, exquisite oddities and old fashioned integrity.
Porcelain Punch Traveling Medicine Show draws influence from the infamous 'Medicine Shows' that once travelled the countryside offering programs of comedy, music, circus and other novelties along with complex displays and a 'hard sell' of assorted tonics, salves, elixirs and the ever unattainable 'miracle medicinal cure'.
Within this unique vaudevillian show, individual and group acts – testimonies and living proof of Porcelain Punch and its 'healing properties' –are interspersed with comedic pitches and audience participation by frontman, Professor Leonard Grad accompanied by illuminating songstress Miss Ellie May Rose.
Drawing on the collective strength of artist's trained in circus, physical theatre, clown and usical theatre, the show's line-up consists of a variety of delightful and intriguing characters that in the old parlance are great value for money. http://www.porcelainpunch.comhttp://www.lamama.com.au
