A rip-roaring and swashbuckling adventure in which three sailors hit the high seas in search of adventure. Age 5+.

The award-winning Head First Acrobats are coming back to Fringe with an adventure the whole family can enjoy! From the creators of Elixir (winner of best circus show at Adelaide Fringe 2018) and smash hit in Edinburgh 2017, comes this brilliant tale of pirates searching for treasure.

A rip-roaring and swashbuckling adventure in which three sailors hit the high seas in search of treasure! A scallywag pirate, a muscular sailor and a chef with a seafood allergy make for a hopeless crew as they fight for the title of Captain aboard the ship. These acrobatic pirates turn ship life upside down! Walking the plank becomes the high-flying teeterboard, cooking for the crew involves juggling knives and steering the ship spinning upside down in the role cyr!

“Best kids show I’ve ever seen” – Funnytonne review.
“The show is about as pacy and fast as you can get and there are absolutely NO slow bits” – Glam Adelaide ★★★★★ from Funnytonne Melbourne, Broadway Baby & Broadway Baby.

This show, from Melbourne, Australia’s Head First Acrobats, is so fun packed that it’s hard to believe it’s only forty minutes long. With plenty of  jokes and acrobatics to keep everybody cheering, clapping and wolf whistling throughout, the pirate theme lends itself perfectly to laugh-out-loud action with knife juggling, ladder balancing and spinning in a metal wheel!
If parents fancy (literally) seeing more of the Head First Acrobats, they’re also doing an evening show called Circus Cision, but Arrr We There Yet is certainly a treasure trove of fun for the entire family and a must-do for this year’s family Fringe list.

Shows at Underbelly Circus Hub in the Meadows from 4-25 August. Tickets available at box office or from tickets.
