A NOTE FROM BREC’S CREATIVE LEARNING COORDINATOR
A charming and witty musical about working together, finding friendship and stopping the hiccups! Distinctly Australian, this whimsical tale tells of a sleep deprived camper who is kept awake by a koala who cannot get rid of the hiccups.  A cheeky quokka and hilarious emu join the camper to eat, sing and invent their way towards a cure before the sun comes up. Catchy songs, bold colourful sets and puppets, this show will delight young audiences

hiccup

A rocking, outback adventure to find the great hiccup cure

It’s a perfect, balmy night in the outback. A sleep-deprived camper, a cheeky quokka and an emu with a penchant for creating wild inventions, awake to discover that a koala has come down with a stubborn and ear-shatteringly loud case of the hiccups.

The three embark on an epic journey through the night that sees them frantically eat, sing and invent their way towards a cure before the sun comes up.

Hiccup is a hilarious rocking musical extravaganza about working together, finding friendship and how to, once and for all, stop the hiccups.

“…the best children’s theatre company in the country…”
THE AUSTRALIAN

“★★★★★ Hiccup is truly an ensemble piece, with stellar actors and production team. It is a welcome and joyous return to theatre for Australian children and their families.”
GLAM ADELAIDE

“Hiccup is a winner… The kids were with them every step of the way, singing and clapping along, cheering the triumphs and lamenting the disappointments, and loving every bit of it.”
THE ADVERTISER

“Windmill’s performance of Hiccup! has barely begun when the theatre erupts in the giggles.”
INDAILY

“The set is a pastel-coloured dream… This is one case of the hiccups you’ll actually want to be near! Don’t miss the world-first run of this show.”
KIDDO MAGAZINE

“Even before he speaks, the audience is laughing at Nathan O’Keefe in little orange shorts and a silver vest.”
