V.6 - Tom Hendry Warehouse 
From the award-winning creators of Fruit Flies Like a Banana (5 STARS - CBC & Free Press) come tales of youth and consequences. Inspired by our discarded mementos, this musical reverie revisits fairy tales, childhood games and the secret life of toys with a foundation of classical favourites and music by living composers. As always, the "seriously talented musicians" (CBC) of The Fourth Wall expertly blend music, theatre and "deft choreography." (Wall Street Journal) "Wonderfully inventive, artistic, creative and smart." (Orlando Sentinel)

Fallen from the Toy Box

The Fourth Wall—Tom Hendry Warehouse

Their previous show, ‘Fruit Flies like a Banana’, brought fame to this troupe and now their act is one of Fringe’s most popular. If you’re unfamiliar with them, the premise is very simple. The trio consists of a flautist, a trombonist and a percussionist; they’re talented musicians who play fun tunes. The edge comes with how they play their instruments and the presentation that accompanies it. Viewers have come to expect them flying through the stage and making music from awkward positions.

This year’s rendition doesn’t disappoint. The music covers a huge variety of genres, from “99 Beers on the Wall” to Carmen, from Charlie Brown, to The Nutcracker, from ballet to drum solos. Highly entertaining as usual, the visual effects add another dimension to this engaging show. Once again, this is a Fringe must-see.
