A madcap musical adventure. WhirlyGig is four brave musicians, 30 instruments, and countless musical puzzles to solve. With impeccable comic and musical timing, the four performers boldly attempt to play wonderful music under the trickiest of situations. Join them for an extraordinary theatrical experience where music will happen in ways you have never seen before. 

Musical maverick Daniel Padden comes together with award-winning Red Bridge Arts and Catherine Wheels to celebrate the thrills and spills of making music.
