Testimonials

“The strength of this performance was in the humour and the “pulling” of audience members into the show—my students loved that.”

“… rare combination of insight and entertainment found only in productions of the highest quality.”

Bryan Pike
Word on the Street

“I wish I could have had history presented to me in such an entertaining way.”

way too blonde

Awards:

The Advertiser Fringe Award for Excellence,
The Adelaide Fringe Festival, 1996

The Best o’ the Fest, The Melbourne
International Comedy Festival, 1996

Fringe 96, Critic’s Choice

Reviews:

“If you think feminists lack a sense of humour the full figure theatre company will change your mind.”

The Vancouver Sun
Vancouver, Canada

“[way too blonde] is snappy, funny and incisive... with a rapid fire of sketch, song and biting burlesque... colorful, punchy and deliciously vicious satirical skills.”


Time Out
London, England.

“… a clever satire on female stereotype sin the media. Cleverly written and extremely well performed by the trio.”

The Adelaide Advertiser
Adelaide, Australia

“… gritty, intelligent, rapid-fire comedy about the pitfalls of womanhood. It is much, much better than TV.”

The Sudbury Sun
Sudbury, Canada

“Lampooning feminine hygiene ads and proclaiming the horrors of a mole-flecked complexion, the full figure theatre company cruise the traumas of being a woman with the ease of a quick flick through Cosmo.

Blasting out witty asides and handy tips on beast implants, this all-girl Canadian trio wonder if they can bag a man while buck-naked and sprawled on a bearskin. If not there’s always ‘Groveling for a Groom’ – a quiz show skit on the desperate straits of the unattached.

way too blonde is ideal for those struggling through a bad hair day.”

Wumpa…an adventure

Reviews:

“The performers are adroit and full of spunk.”

The Edmonton Sun

“A beautifully crafted, innovatively staged work.”

The Advertiser
Adelaide, Australia

“… the beauty of this witty ensemble piece of mime, aerobics, modern dance and song is that it finds a novel, intelligent vehicle for (a) message..”

The Edmonton Journal
Edmonton, Canada

“[wumpa] is a fresh, euphoric, densely packed exploration of just how confusing and disheartening it can be to be struggling with centuries old bias.”

The Georgia Straight
Vancouver, Canada

“It works because of the sheer energy of the performers and the skill and variety of their storytelling. Tammy Bentz, Jacqueline Dandeneau and Sharon Heath sing, dance and clown at a breakneck pace… The Storytelling here is infectiously joyous.”

The Georgia Straight
Vancouver, Canada

“The three performers, fearless and deliciously versatile women, create a crowd of characters from strutting ringmaster to simpering official, plus hapless victim and oafish clowns… The show is a jolly romp which draws foot-stomping approbation from its audiences.”

The Advertiser
Adelaide, Australia

“Wumpa… an adventure is high-energy storytelling – a fable-style narrative enlivened by singing, acrobatics, and comedy. No lions or elephants, but there is a horse. A fun and polished show.”

The Fringe
Vancouver, Canada

“Wumpa was a great jump of a bigtop diving board.”

Jean Bernier
The Jenny Revue
