Kooky sis­ters tour

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Comedy - Tanya Macnaughton

MOURNE Kran­sky (An­nie Lee) may have an in­ter­est­ing re­la­tion­ship with her strange sis­ters Eve (Chris­tine John­ston) and Dawn (Carolyn Johns), but it works well enough for this odd trio to travel the world per­form­ing their kooky brand of mu­si­cal com­edy.

“Dawn is from a dif­fer­ent fa­ther, so she’s a lit­tle dif­fer­ent from us, and lives in Mrs Ev­er­more’s laun­dry in the house over the back fence,” Mourne said.

“She doesn’t live with us be­cause the meat safe used to drip through the kitchen floor­board on to her bed.

“We get on all right al­right and travel around to­gether, but Dawn al­ways sits in the back seat and doesn’t say much; she has not spo­ken since our mother left with her fa­ther.

“We have a lovely time as long as Eve doesn’t go to sleep be­cause when she does her knee sits up against the gear stick.

“I had to travel once all the way to Goul­burn from Esk in sec­ond gear in the Mor­ris Ma­jor.”

Esk in ru­ral Queens­land is home for the sib­lings, where they were “tend­ing the zuc­chi­nis to get them large enough for Christ­mas time fun” be­fore speak­ing to Com­mu­nity News about their lat­est show, A Very Kran­sky Christ­mas. Au­di­ences should pre­pare for in­stru­ment ac­com­pa­ni­ment by mu­si­cal saw, tuba, key­board, toi­let brush, pot and spat­ula, cheese grater and du­elling tam­bourines.

“We do a lot of dif­fer­ent songs from The Car­pen­ters and Daft Punk, Si­mon and Gar­funkel, Nana Mousk­ouri and Step­pen­wolf down to Santa Claus songs,” Mourne said.

“We en­joy meet­ing the peo­ple at our shows, shar­ing in the Christ­mas fes­tiv­i­ties and we’ll even give them some recipes.”
