Your Night, You Decide. Select one, select them all. You own the night with Multiple Choice Events: [A] Attend a show [B] Go to a party [C] Grab a bite at our Food Truck Roundup, or [D] All of the above. Take part in an experience like no other with Multiple Choice Events: Non-Verbal Edition, featuring the WONDERHEADS. In the WONDERHEADS performance of “Grim and Fischer,” The Grim Reaper meets his match in Mrs. Fischer, a stubborn senior whose will to live is a force to be reckoned with. Equal parts hilarious and touching, this award winning physical comedy by mask imagineers the WONDERHEADS is the story of a tenacious granny who comes face to face with the Grim Reaper himself and must put up the fight of her life to escape his definitive grip. Grim and Fischer is performed in full-face mask, a form so magical you will forget your age and marvel in childlike delight. Wordless and whimsical, it has been described by audiences as watching a living cartoon, or live-action Pixar. The show has been touring the continent since 2009 and leaving sold out houses and delighted audiences in its wake. A profoundly fun blend of physical theatre, comedy and pathos, Grim and Fischer is an extraordinary experience you won’t soon forget. Or, join us later in the evening for a Silent Disco Party. From the minds of Quiet Events, the Silent Disco lets your choose what to jam to with a simple flick of a switch. The blue, red or green light on each headset shows which DJ other party go-ers are listening to. Sway along to the same song as your friends or tap into your own tune – the possibilities are endless. Put your headphones on and the sounds of the party pulse to life. Food truck entry is free, and will be available throughout the evening.
