It’s anything but pedestrian. Enjoy a moment of joy while you wait for the green light with The Crosswalk Theatre - hilarious, magical, goofy skits that play out in just fifteen seconds across ordinary pedestrian crossings around the CBD. Witness the street turn into an Olympic swimming pool, a spontaneous wedding or perhaps you’ll be caught up in a nail-biting epic cross-country race. Starring Sabrina Martin and William Duignan with magical costumes and props by Victoria Gridley. They’re tiny scenes that pack a big punch. Brought to you by Hugo Grrrl’s Gigs.
