The Mask Family are a suite of full face, non-verbal, accessible, inclusive and magical roving mask theatre acts that connect directly to the heart. They are a heart-warming exploration of the joy of the human interaction - and the incredible power of how a simple act of kindness, and authentic connection, can transform a person's life.
"The English Bobbies were an absolute hit with audiences! The performers were incredibly entertaining and engaging! Would highly recommend them for any event! World Class!"
– Johanna Clark, Promotional Staff, The 2018 Commonwealth Games (2018)
"The Mask Family were a huge hit at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Public Viewing Events (Race Walk, Cycling Time Trial and Cycling Road Race). Many of the spectators stopped the ‘tourists’ for happy snaps and enjoyed a chin wag, while the Lollypop Ladies had the crowds ‘laughing and hopping’ their way through the events, providing much entertainment for both the young and old (including myself)!"
-Jules Delemare - LOUD Events (2018)
"We were looking for a way to liven up our local street parade and booked The Lollypop Ladies. The Lollypop ladies were a big hit with the crowds and added that perfect unique edge the parade was lacking. The performers generously went above and beyond to interact with the crowd and stopped for many photos after the parade, something we were incredibly grateful for. A pleasure to work with and artistically unique -I’d recommend this world class troupe for any public event!"
-Paul Smyth, Events Officer , CEO Unit Douglas Shire Council (2018)
"Thank you for bringing The Lollypop Ladies and The Tourists to The Red Earth Arts Festival! They were the perfect fit; fun, colourful, entertaining and unique - creating a trail of laughter and vibrancy wherever they went. "
-Emily Zimmerle - The Red Part Arts Festival - Western Australia (2018)
"I booked a range of The Mask Family acts for my venue programming at Splendour In The Grass Festival 2018. Working with these highly skilled artists is an absolute pleasure! Thoroughly professional and genuinely lovely people to have onboard our team. The character profiles were perfectly selected to suit our guest demographic - their creative presence was extraordinary, and the artists' ability to bring joy out of any crowd is a testament to their theatrical prowess, character control and embodiment."
-Michelle Harris (Managing Director), Sacred Circus Entertainment, (2018)
"Kids and adults alike LOVED The Lolly Pop Ladies! Such great interactions by industry professionals, who clearly have fabulous comic timing!"
