They Came From Uranus - Ben Sorensen’s 60 Second Review

The review:

👽 They Came From Uranus is a funny wild ride by master puppeteer Murray Raine as part of the Midsumma Festival program at the MC Showroom.

It’s a witty "adults only" story with a banging soundtrack you'll want to sing along to, filled with a menagerie of ever increasingly fun characters and surprises.

If you put burlesque, drag, puppets, and comedy in a blender “They Came From Uranus” would be the resulting smoothie filled with fibre and awesome.

It’s only on until January 27th, so get your backside down to see it.

PS… “Puppet Nudity” is now my favourite TW.


The Presser:

A tale of lust, sex & perversion in a psychedelic adults-only sci-fi puppet burlesque

“They Came From Uranus” tells a story of lust, sex and perversion. Belonging to the oeuvre of the best B-grade trashy sci-fi movies, our tale follows a woman’s courage as she saves the world from an alien invasion and restores universal faith in the great responsibility of our most precious of assets... social influencers.

This hilariously unique show is performed in its own stunningly ornate miniature burlesque theatre and features a dazzling array of shadow puppetry, multi-media projections and "Humanettes", a rarely seen form of puppetry which comprises the puppeteers head with a puppet’s body.

Director James Welsby (Yummy Productions) and his cast of 20 sexsational Humanettes (all played by Murray Raine) are lavishly costumed by Isaac Lummis and introduce us to a world of debauched aliens and glittering burlesque beauties. This show seeks to morph the real into the ridiculous, and to redefine indecency.

If you’re captivated by camp theatre, big hair-dos and retro music then this is one rock’n “adults only” puppet show you do not want to miss!
