Walkabout Theatre

About our Walkabout

If you've enjoyed a Vamos Theatre production, you'll love our street theatre Walkabout, where our full mask characters get out and about with the public at festivals and events.

Our Midwives on Call, with their starched aprons and sensible shoes, respond at a moment’s notice to any unexpected deliveries. Our girls, the epitome of wartime spirit, make sure the public are in tip top health, and are known to deliver a baby or two along the way! Led by the formidable Matron, they always keep calm and carry on.

You can't miss the Crimplene Crusaders: these twin-set clad campaigners keep a firm eye out for any slouching, flirting, or hand-holding, making sure that good old fashioned values are championed (although they often can't resist the temptation to 'get down' to some modern tunes.)

And as for our Cheapskate Caterers, you'll be simply amazed by their incompetence! Serving drinks and canapés at events, the Cheapskate team guarantee silliness, clumsiness, inappropriate flirting, over-attentiveness, drunken and attention-seeking behaviour of all kinds. Not to be forgotten in a hurry!

All our acts are out and about throughout the year. If you're interested in booking one of ou acts for your event, visit the Walkabout promoters' page for full details.




I have had such great feedback from so many residents, groups and businesses saying how much fun the Midwives on Call were!

They were absolutely fantastic!  The day went so well and they really added to atmosphere – they definitely caused a stir!
