Music, games and colourful clowns collide! After touring across several elementary schools and festivals in Chicago, Bubblegum Gumdrop and her best friend, Babblebum Boopbop, have decided to create a new and spectacular show just for Fringe. With physical comedy, games, audience participation and original music, this is the perfect show for children with the wiggles and the giggles. Bubblegum wants to have the silliest show at the Fringe, where kids feel comfortable to express themselves and have their creative voices heard during the process.

My daughter aged 5 absolutely loved your show. In fact she loved it so much we had to come twice!!! It was funny, entertaining and she loved having the opportunity to participate. The whole show was pitched perfectly for the age of the audience and Bubblegum Gumdrop made every child feel special and included.

I saw the show today with my 5 and 8 year old daughters. They absolutely loved it. They loved having the freedom to pop their hand up and share ideas and take part on stage. We loved the characters and the show was a happy and easygoing experience.
