JUST TRICKING, ANNOYING, STUPID, CRAZY, DISGUSTING, SHOCKING, DOOMED LIVE ON STAGE!
Adapted by Robin Goldsworthy from the JUST book series written by Andy Griffiths and illustrated by Terry Denton
Every year Andy’s school holds a short story competition and every year Andy writes an awesome, amazing, captivating and terrifying story. However, every year Andy is robbed of winning, thwarted by some dumb story about kittens and sunshine. That is because Mr Rowe is against him and the competition is rigged. Mr Rowe wouldn’t know a good story if it jumped off the page and bit him on the bum. And technically, Andy’s been banned from entering the competition after last year’s…incident. But surely that can all be forgotten with a marvellous victory?!
With the help of his best friend Danny, the love of his life Lisa, his somewhat trusty dog Sooty and a lifetime of crazy, shocking, doomed, stupid and just plain disgusting experiences, Andy sets out on a night that will ensure a flawless victory.
JUST Tricking, Annoying, Stupid, Crazy, Disgusting, Shocking, Doomed LIVE ON STAGE! takes on the wonderful world of the JUST books by Andy Griffiths, vividly and hilariously bringing them to life on the stage with everything from invisibility pills and Mudmen, to vomiting dogs and death defying balloon rides.
Definitely not for the faint hearted, this magical production will dazzle the young and young at heart!

From the Program Coordinator… This brand new production is sure to be an absolute hoot! As amalgamation of plots from not one, but seven JUST books, it might “just” get your students reading more and inspire them to want to go on more adventures with these clever characters. Narrative conventions of character, plot and climax have never been so fun to learn about! Maybe they can try writing their own JUST story?
