Mission accomplished for Whoosh! Regional Tour

Sensorium Theatre have just completed a successful five-week regional tour with their new show Whoosh! recruiting more than 700 space cadets and assistant crew across regional Western Australia.

Local audiences and regional venues both felt the positive impact of Sensorium’s inclusive and innovative performance and sang nothing but praises about Whoosh!

What an incredible experience the beautiful children of Albany had with your wonderful show! Never have we had sooooooo many smiling, exuberant faces walking out elated! THANK YOU TO ALL!

Bump out done! What an awesome week it has been with the truly amazing Sensorium Theatre. One of the best teams I’ve ever worked with and an experience the children of this region won’t forget. I hope their spaceship lands in your town. “

Sensorium’s space adventure did not go unnoticed by local media; earning front page coverage and feature articles in local newspapers as well as interviews on local radio stations.
