Unique Selling Point
The show is filled with so many 'what just happened moments?! As an audience member I feel refreshed when I see new shows and that is what I strive to create.
Environmental conservation is at the forefront at the moment due to our current climate. Corporations, communities and councils are trying to find new innovative ways on how they can teach, promote and encourage environmental conservation. PLASTICA FANTASTICA does this., created in a way which is not preachy, using comedy and silliness to convey the message. People don't like being told what to do, but they do love to laugh.
