NEW TRAMPOLINE TRAILER

17 06 2015




FRINGE WORLD 2015

19 01 2015

 

Hey gang. It’s been a while between drinks, but as usual I’ve been busy working behind-the-scenes wearing my Producer’s Hat and I’m so excited to finally launch into 2015 with a bunch of exciting shows at the Fringe World Festival and a new position as Artistic Director of Weeping Spoon Productions.

Firstly, my play TRAMPOLINE returns to Perth for the first time at the Fringe Festival and with two incredible new cast members joining me onstage from Jan 23rd. It’s been a blast having two of my favourite performers, the ridiculously multi-talented Ella Hetherington and Brendan Ewing, help create a really fun, fresh take on the show. Dare I say, the best yet. Tickets on sale here.

saf2I’m also joining my good friends from the States, Sound And Fury for their 2015 Australian Tour, performing in Hamlet and Juliet and Hitchcocked. Be sure to check out their website for tour dates and times at Fringe World and The Adelaide Fringe.

Beyond that I’ll also be in Adelaide with the return of the Blue Room Award winning This Is Not A Love song at Tuxedo Cat. Tegan Mulvany and Greg Fleet are back and joining us this time around is muso Mick Moriarty of GUD and The Gadfly’s fame.

I should also mention I’m (ever so briefly) in the feature film Paper Planes, currently playing across Australia. You should go see it.

IN THE FUTURE…

2015 is looking like it’s going to be a big year for Weeping Spoon. In the second part of this year there’s some big news in regards to Canada and some brand NEW works (plural!) from my brain this year which I am really excited plus some really awesome collaborations about but more on that once I get through Fringe.

The 2014 Turnstile Awards for “excellence in theatre in Perth acknowledging outstanding locally produced (or co-produced) stage shows” were announced recently and I am proud to announce that out of nine winners, I was involved in three winning productions! Two of which were Weeping Spoon shows!

Thanks to everyone else involved in my show Trampoline, my Australian/Canadian co-production Vicious Circles and also to Greg Fleet, Tegan Mulvany and team for This Is Not A Love Song.

I am super chuffed, these are three shows I am extremely proud of and it’s always nice to have that work recognized.





A few new Trampoline Reviews

14 05 2014

There’s been some lovely reviews popping up around Montreal (and one from our recent Perth season) that I thought I’d share.  We still have three shows left May 14, 16 and 17 at Mainline Theatre, tickets available ONLINE or at the door!

“Adamczak’s trademark lighthearted humour will appreciate an interesting change of pace as this dark comedy reveals moments of real heartbreak… But that’s not to say your face won’t hurt from laughing as you leave the theatre. Layered and touching, Trampoline is a gorgeous piece of theatre you won’t soon forget.” -Bloody Underrated

“This is a well written and cleverly acted play that will delight and amuse but also make you questions your notions of normal” – The Australian Times

“Adamczak again displays his natural ability to completely immerse himself in his characters and draw the audience into his world. Along with the equally excellent performances by Stevie and Vance  the play is both touching and hilarious.” – Culture Plus

New review for TRAMPOLINE

8 04 2014

Check out this sweet review for our Subiaco season of Trampoline on Perthculture.com.

“Shane Adamczak is a comic writing genius in my book. His short play Trampoline is one of the most endearingly whimsical love stories to grace the small stage I’ve ever seen. It packs such a ‘feel good’ punch that once its finished you’ll want to go straight back into the theatre and watch it all over again.” -PerthCulture.com
