MAYOR FOR A DAY By Damian Callinan
Friday 18th November 2022, 7.00PM at Edi Upper Hall, Edi
Tickets $30 includes a supper provided by the Edi Upper Hall Committee after the show.
Bar & doors open at 6.30pm for a 7.00pm start. Drinks at bar prices.
The popularly unelected Damian Callinan is slipping on the mayoral robes for 24 hours to run his comedic eyes over your town. After the one-man, public service campaigner has taken in all he can, he’ll rock up to the hall armed only with a projector and a microphone. His ironclad campaign promise is that the council chambers will be ringing with the constituent’s laughter as he reports his findings at this very unofficial council meeting.
Combining photos, observations, municipal advice, community interactions, colourful yarns and his uncanny eye for seeing things that the locals don’t, Callinan will have the town thinking he’s been residing there for a year rather than a day.
“Damian Callinan’s Mayor for a Day is that perfect performance combo of hilarity and community.”
Xavier Dannock. Lighthouse Theatre
Damian has a unique way of disarming the audience and flipping the funnies back onto them. It was an absolute delight to see our local community laughing together with and at themselves. A total celebration of local stories.”
Susie Lyons, Glenelg Shire Council (2022)
