The perfect conclusion to our debut season of Cartoobs and Other Typos! Adelaide Fringe Festival director Greg Clarke came along to one of the final performances of the show, and saw fit to award us the Tour Ready Award.
This recognition and assistance will be invaluable as we set about taking the show on the road, heading to Adelaide Fringe Festival for a limited season in February 2013, and then to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
I think I speak for both Mr Onthemoon and I when I say we were beyond chuffed to win, and we thank everyone involved in the Melbourne and Adelaide Fringe Festivals for their support.
For months I’ve been slaving away in production land, preparing First Dog on the Moon‘s first foray on to the stage. After seeing him perform around a year ago at a poetry slam I was excited about his potential to do a full show of his own. We talked about it over the year, and I finally convinced him to give it a go for Melbourne Fringe Festival. Now here we are on the eve of his first show, Cartoobs and Other Typos.
The lead up has been incredible. We’ve sold out the entire season, added more shows, and nearly sold out those. The trial shows have gone well, and Mr Onthemoon and I are looking forward to getting things underway.
It has been really enjoyable to get back to producing a festival show, and I hope there is more of a chance to do it again soon. There are tickets still available, so come along and enjoy!
