Due to an unfortunate accident to performer Tom Flanagan, the New Zealand tour of Kaput has been cancelled – including the Nelson Arts Festival performance. All ticket holders will be contacted about an alternative show or refund.

Kaput is a multi-award winning family show that has enthralled audiences of all ages with slapstick, acrobatics and total silliness.

Be swept up in the mayhem of a larger-than-life lovable buffoon as his day is flipped upside-down by the lonely, dust-covered world that surrounds him. Channelling Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, our luckless hero struggles to get the upper hand, taking one step forward and two steps back in a highly skilled, hilariously funny and beautifully poignant bit of madness, until everything is truly kaput!

From Adelaide to Edinburgh, Tom Flanagan’s silent comedy show has toured four continents, won countless awards and collected fans from five to 95 years old.

“Dangerously clever.” RIP IT UP
