Now fondly referred to as a Fringe institution, the musical improv smash hit wonder Baby Wants Candy is back with more brand new, ad-libbed, undefined, exhilarating 55-minute musicals, all taken from audience suggestions.
With a full band in action, the company create the opening and closing night of a one night only smash-hit musical – every single night! Witness the plot of Kanye West Side Story be pulled out of thin air. Behold the beauty of theatre as Nicola Sturgeon, Hypnotist comes to life. Each show is a roller-coaster ride of spontaneously choreographed numbers. Unscripted, unguided, unpredictable… and often uncontrollable.
Since they began coming to the Fringe, their fan base has grown in such a force that Baby Wants Candy have sold out every single show, extra shows included, at the festival. They recently enjoyed a five star sell-out run (alongside Thrones! The Musical) at the Adelaide Fringe, and their spin-off show Shamilton (an improvised parody of Hamilton) has currently been selling out Stateside and is about to embark on a nationwide US tour. They are also set to perform at the prestigious John F Kennedy Arts Centre in Washington this July.
One of the longest running and most celebrated improv troupes in the world, Baby Wants Candy has launched the careers of various top comedic actors and writers in the US, from Craig Cackowski (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Arrested Development) to Jack McBrayer (Kenneth in 30 Rock), Vanessa Bayer and Aidy Bryant (Saturday Night Live), Thomas Middleditch (HBO’s Silicon Valley) and Peter Gwinn (Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report).
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Baby Wants Candy: The Completely Improvised Full Band Musical are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
