The Science Gang live on stage at the MEC.

Join all-singing, all-dancing (and all-clowning!) biology teachers Oesoph A. Gus and Dewey Dean as they explore the ins and outs of the human digestive system in their award-winning show, You Are a Doughnut.

Produced by That Science Gang, who created the award-winning The Alphabet of Awesome Science, this new show explores the many twists, turns and intestinal intricacies of the human digestive system — with sketches, songs and sensational science demonstrations.

You Are a Doughnut has won a couple of Adelaide Fringe Festival Awards — the 2023 “Science at the Fringe” Award as well as a 2022 Weekly Award for “Best Kids and Family”.

Stepping into the roles of Oesoph and Dewey are vastly experienced comedic performers Rod Schultz and PJ Oaten — with Schultz’s performances including a variety of character roles with State Opera SA, and Oaten’s many credits including the role of Barnaby the Bizzy Buzzy Bee in The Fairies.

Music for the show has been composed by Mark Simeon Ferguson, who has written a host of songs for the SA public Primary Schools Music Festival and whose orchestral works have been performed by a number of Australia’s major orchestras.

It all adds up to the weirdest, most accidentally educational variety-hour/biology-lesson that you’re ever likely to experience.
