About this event

When Elliot - a self-conscious and bookish eight year old - discovers that she can grow metre-long snot from her nose and wield it like a fifth appendage, she learns to use her newfound powers to solve playground problems and make new friends. This story - told by a chorus of characters, a swelling soundtrack and almost entirely in rhyme - Elliot’s Big Nose and the Snot That It Grows promises a magical journey of image-based theatre and puppetry.

This is a theatre work for anyone who loves all things gross. Directed by Christopher Moro and written by Elise Wilson under the mentorship of Barking Gecko and the Australian Theatre for Young People’s Fresh Ink program, this play will have both children and adults squirming in their seats. 

Presented by:
Elise Wilson

Elise Wilson and Christopher Moro are graduates of WAAPA's BPA Performance Making course. This year, Christopher performed in 'Fire' and 'My Shout' in the Blue Room Theatre's 2021 season and he made his directorial debut in 'What's Poppin' as part of the theatre's 900 Seconds program, which he co-wrote with Elise.

Elise's first play, 'Floor Thirteen' premiered at The Blue Room Theatre in 2019 and she also wrote the Senior Jury Prize-winning comedic short film 'The Ransom' for the WA Youth Theatre Company in 2020.

Elise and Christopher have assembled a stellar team with experience in puppetry and children's entertainment. They include Kylie Bywaters, Asha Kiani, Fiona MacDonald, Maddie Young, Amelia Baker, Jono Battista, Dani Chilton, Alicia Gould & Annabel Gunson.

Fringefeed reviews

  • This talent is paired with intelligent use of props; you’d be amazed by the sheer amount of everyday objects that can be used as fake snot! – Seesaw
  • An enchanting combination of puppetry, poetry, allegory, and song. – Fringefeed
