Sand Box Land is the brain-child of Katherine Phelps and Morgan Phillips.
Tucked away in a funky venue in North Melbourne this is a little show with a big heart. Inspired by The Muppets and Garrison Keillor, Katherine and Morgan gather up musicians, comedians, storytellers and poets and create a family-friendly variety show around a theme. In May the theme was super heroes and every contributor had their own take.
I went to Sandbox Land as part of a group celebrating a birthday. We enjoyed a meal (there are many places to eat nearby) .. so it was dinner and a show. We had a bunch of kids with us and it was obvious they had a ball, and we had a ball watching them. When they saw children in the front row, the comedians and storytellers adapted their material at super speed– most impressive!
Quirky, friendly and bizarre, Sandbox Land feels like it’s happening in someone’s house rather than a venue.
