Bubba-Licious: A Fringe show for babies and toddlers

Adelaide Fringe show, Bubba-Licious, is a stage show specifically written for infants aged between 6 months and 3 years. It brings together lighting effects, puppetry, music and a variety of other sensory stimulations to awaken wonder for the babies and toddlers in the audience! 
A Fringe show for Adelaide’s newest audience members!

Life with a baby or a toddler can be tough.

Hugely rewarding, life changing, exhausting, priority changing and exhilarating all at the same time. These tiny humans come into our lives and remake our understanding of everything we’ve ever known… including how much sleep we need to function. We instantly love the children we care for and want to give them the world. Unfortunately they aren’t quite ready for most of the experiences the world has to offer.

Bubba-Licious: Sell out Fringe show in 2020

Bubba-Licious was 2020’s surprise sell out hit of the Fringe. This year it returns to the stage revamped for a larger venue.

The stage show, which has been written for infants aged between 6 months and 3 years, brings together lighting effects, puppetry, music and a variety of other sensory stimulations to awaken wonder for the babies and toddlers in the audience!

Bubba-Licious: Inspired by parenthood

The show is written and performed by Kat Grey, proud mum of her 3.5yo toddler.

Kat has been producing and performing shows at the Adelaide Fringe for 6 years. Once her son was born she began looking for performances that would be appropriate for him. While there are a wonderful selection of performances that are baby-friendly, where he is welcome to sit on an adult’s lap to watch as long as he stays quiet, there wasn’t really anything that was a performance specifically to engage his admittedly narrow interests. With studies confirming the benefits of encouraging infants to experience a variety of sensory experiences for babies and young children, Kat set out to create the show she was looking for.

So Bubba-Licious was (pun intended) BORN!

Mums, dads and caregivers can be part of the Fringe atmosphere

Beyond the performance itself, Kat is hoping to create an opportunity for new mums, dads and carers to come out of the house and be a part of the magical Fringe atmosphere.

Being performed at Gluttony, within Rymill Park, Kat hopes that her show will be part of a family day out with parents then staying to bond over food, drink and sunshine like normal human beings.

Gluttony has made great efforts to ensure their facilities are family friendly (including having parenting rooms available within the park) making it a perfect fit for this new show.
