Review | Laura Money
Did you know there’s a whale in the Museum? No, not the bony one! Another whale washed up and sick. The Whale’s Tale sees our intrepid Navigator investigate why the whale is sick and how we can help. Enlisting the help of Dr Walrus – a flatulent but kind Dr – the pair try everything to make the whale well again.
Through puppetry, whimsical costumes, and hilarious interactions with the audience the crew from Born In A Taxi Collective really get you thinking. The Navigator is hilarious and her voice quirky and tailored to an audience full of kids. Dr Walrus has everyone in stitches with his antis and the Shark makes a hilarious 180 degree turn, delighting the crowd.
The Whale’s Tale is a thought-provoking show that enlists the youth of today in the fight against plastic – enthusiastically rallying everyone to do better.
The Whale’s Tale is on at Boola Bardip WA Museum until 1st October 2022. TICKETS
