The “Kangaroo Creek Gang Roadshow” was initially introduced to Australian audiences in 1986.
The Kangaroo Creek Gang are very well known to Western Australia's children through their book series (40 books in total) and educational packages, which are currently available in 95% of Western Australia’s primary schools. Kangaroo Creek Gang characters are also featured every night in Kenny Kidna’s ‘goodnight segment’ on Channel 10 in Perth and in their own animated cartoon series being shown on the 9 network.
The Kangaroo Creek Gang Roadshow offers a number of different children's entertainment performance formats to suit a variety of situations and requirements. Their shows feature a combination of costume characters and large puppets and live music.
Their shows also have a large element of musical pantomime, with a complete story line and a plot. All Kangaroo Creek Gang puppet characters speak and they have their own unique personality.
Each and every performance features live music from Ranger West's guitar and large scale audience participation - dancing, singing and playing musical instruments.
All performances are highly interactive with the children - they find that kids would much rather be involved than simply watch something happen on the stage. Host (Ranger West) gets the audience involved even before the show starts and every performance receives a great response.
