Where Brisbane - - What’s On -

Power City was once the most beau­ti­ful city in the world—clean, pure, per­fect—and lo­cal hero Laser Beak Man worked hard to keep it that way. Draw­ing en­ergy from the un­der­ground Magna Crys­tals that pow­ered the city, his beak-shot lasers turned bad things to good. But now the city isn’t what it used to be and Laser Beak Man is thor­oughly over it. That is, un­til his es­tranged child­hood friends Peter Bat­man and Evil Emily re­turn and steal the Magna Crys­tals. Robbed of his su­per pow­ers, Laser Beak Man has one last chance to rein­vent Power City and save his old­est bud­dies be­fore they de­stroy ev­ery­thing. Jam-packed with the trade­mark vis­ual puns of artist Tim Sharp and fea­tur­ing live mu­sic com­posed and per­formed by Sam Cro­mack of Ball Park Mu­sic, the world of “Laser Beak Man” is brought to life in pup­pet form by the cre­ative ge­niuses of Dead Pup­pet So­ci­ety (“The Wider Earth”, “Ar­gus”, “The Har­bin­ger”) in this stun­ning new vis­ual the­atre work loaded with cut­ting edge dig­i­tal im­agery.
