Participation Award


A musical comedy that asks the question - why does school suck so much?!

Is it the compulsory sporting events? The one size fits all grading methods? Maintaining your precarious position in a volatile social food chain? Or is it just the arbitrary bullying?

Using comedy, music, dancing (of the boy band variety), Perl takes her audience on an incredible journey through primary school life as an outcast. It’s not a new story, by any means, but the Melbourne comic makes the tale so hilariously personal that it becomes completely original.

Delivered with her signature high-energy, high-awkward, vulnerable-when-no-one-asked-her-to-be musical story-telling, Jude explores confrontation through the ages (her ages).

As it turns out, confrontation isn’t so hard if you just close your eyes, and imagine you are in a calmer, distant place… then all you have to do is move to that place, change your name and hair colour, and that way the person you are confronting has no way of ever finding you.

Jude Perl is a multi-award winning singer, songwriter and comedian based in Melbourne. In her hometown, she has created a name for herself by writing and performing hilarious, yet brutally honest, stream-of-consciousness style lyrics, set to undeniably catchy and well-crafted songs.

Her last show I Have A Face has won multiple awards, toured all over Australia to sold out audiences and has been widely praised for its unique voice and honesty.

This is a COVIDsafe, accessible and inclusive event for all abilities and demographics. If you need assistance at the venue, please let us know when booking your ticket or contact us directly.
