Gerard Veltre (Artistic Director of Phunktional): â€œThe show is a lot of fun, we are performing in schools during the day and decided it would be great to be able to also do a special night time show for parents and the wider community. Whenever we have done this in other parts of Australia the adult audiences have always loved the show and found it really entertainingâ€
