Synopsis

Wednesday 13 December 2017
8pm

The Kransky Sisters bring you A Very Kransky Christmas.

Come and join these off-the-wall siblings as they turn your Christmas into a stuffed ham. With their unusual array of instruments from cheese grater to toilet brush, tuba to musical saw, settle in for what could be your kookiest Christmas party yet.

In a quiet town in the middle of south east Queensland lives a huddle of strange sisters, whom, in between tending ants, knitting egg warmers, and hanging out cane toad skins to dry, travel around the country performing their popular musical shows to a growing following. This oddball musical trio marry curious real life stories with a host of uniquely homemade arrangements of popular songs gleaned from their old wireless in a highly entertaining event.

This holiday season, the musical sister’s invite you into their Christmas festivities, a tradition that, until now, has been shrouded in secrecy. Expect egg nog, panty-hose and painted chokoes along with musical numbers from Enya to Silent Night, Daft Punk to The Twelve Days of Christmas, the dysfunctional sisters take family get-togethers to a new level.

The combination of the Sisters’ sheltered view of the world seen through their superbly droll comic dialogue, and alluring musical sound makes this night out with your strange old aunts an unforgettable experience.

The Kransky Sisters have been regular guests on television including SBS’s In Siberia Tonight and ABC’s The Side Show and Spicks and Specks and BBC’s Comedy Shuffle.
