Once upon a time in 1974, a tiny town called Korumburra faced perilous decline until a local teacher decided to capitalise on what they had bigger and better than anywhere else – a giant worm.

One hundred metres of pink material, a golf buggy and a roll of poly pipe later, Karmai the giant pink worm puppet was born! Manipulated by 34 school children, this blind, deaf and boneless folk hero took the world by storm!

Part TED talk, comic-monologue and 70s variety show, this is the true story of Melita’s search for a lost Aussie legend. Proof that when we seek magic in our lives, sometimes we need to look no further than our own backyard.

GIANT WORM SHOW #2 sm photo credit Maryna RotheTHE GIANT WORM SHOW! runs from 6-10 Sept at Old 505 Theatre @ 5 Eliza. 

Hot on the heels of Melita’s last festival hit 6 Degrees of Ned Kelly,  With rave reviews from from Adelaide, Melbourne & Sydney Fringe:

“A wonderfully constructed exploration of two family myths presented with lightness and humour.” Broadway World… “She makes you want to have a Kelly connection so you can share the joy of the myth with her.” Australian Stage… “Engaging, funny, tender and outrageously, candidly, wonderfully human.” Syke on Stage.“Lively, entertaining and thought-provoking.” Theatre People…
