10 October 2022

That’s a wrap on Slingsby’s 13-week tour of The Boy Who Talked to Dogs! It was truly heart-warming to take this beautiful show on the road and share with audiences across Australia.  

The tour headed to 7 venues, thank you to all our presenters and venues including, Geelong Town Hall, Bathurst Memorial Entertainment Centre, Araluen Cultural Precinct, Darwin Entertainment Centre, Darwin Festival, Logan Entertainment Centre, Sir Robert Helpmann Theatre, Chaffey Theatre, and Country Arts SA 

We employed 10 incredibly talented artists and touring production staff (including Bryan Burroughs, Victoria Falconer, Emma Luker, Quincy Grant, Laura Palombello, Jamie Mensforth, Darian Tregenza, David McLean, Tom and Taylor from Event Technologies). 

And thanks to our supporters and funders RISE, Australia Council for the Arts and Arts SA.  

Some wonderful audience feedback from The Boy Who Talked To Dogs:  

A superb production. Everything. Extraordinary – Ben 

Bravely done… I gave our dogs a big welcome when I got home last night! – George 

What a little gem. It was superb and Bryan Burroughs’ performance was beyond superlatives. The music was excellent and the perfect backdrop for the narrative with tremendous creativity in the whole production – lighting, sets and puppetry.  – David 

Gratitude to all involved in a superb production which enabled such a powerful and perfect manifestation of Martin McKenna’s story. The support, by extraordinary musicians and crew, effecting utter magic with sound and light, was exquisitely coordinated. Thus was Bryan Burroughs’ sustained solo performance utterly transportive and masterful emotive. – Cassandra 

In 2023, we are planning to take The Boy Who Talked to Dogs to overseas, so stay tuned!
