Tonight’s bin night and the Trash Test Dummies are on duty!

This award winning, sidesplitting, slapstick comedy, circus routine takes the household wheelie bin to new heights, and delivers a dump-truck full of hilarity!

Winners of Best Children’s Presentation at the Adelaide Fringe 2015 and 2016, and runners-up for Children’s Choice Award 2016, the Trash Test Dummies are as full of laughs as their bins are full of surprises.
