COST: $38 full / $32 concession

BOOKINGS: Please click here to book


A decadent story of love bombs going awry in an outragous sixty minute “adults only’’ sci-fi cabaret burlesque. It’s a sexy, sassy, hilarious puppet feast performed by master puppeteer and gender illusionist Murray Raine and his company “Murray and the Murrayonettes”.

“They Came From Uranus” tells a story of lust, sex and perversion. Belonging to the oeuvre of the best B-grade trashy sci-fi movies our tale follows a woman’s courage as she saves the world from an alien invasion and restores universal faith in the great responsibility of our most precious of assets… social influencers.

This unique show is performed in its own ornate miniature burlesque theatre and features a dazzling array of shadow puppetry, multi-media projections and “Humanettes”, a rarely seen form of puppetry which comprises the puppeteers head with a puppet’s body.

Director James Welsby(Yummy Productions)and his cast of 20 sexsational Humanettes (all played by Murray Raine) are lavishly costumed by Isaac Lummis, and introduce us to a world of debauched aliens and glittering burlesque beauties. This show seeks to morph the real into the ridiculous, and to redefine indecency.

If you’re captivated by camp theatre, big hair-dos and retro music then this is one rock’n “adults only” puppet show you do not want to miss!

Disclaimer: This show features strong adult themes and not suitable for Kiddies, the faint hearted or church social groups.


“Master puppeteer Murray Raine bought to life his extravagant “humanette” puppets performing a humorous risqué show of sexy, sassy and unashamedly decadent displays of high camp hilarity… the audience laughed until they had tears in their eyes.” Inner City News Melbourne

“Among ‘the boldest, funniest, most fascinating events that we think you’ll love’.”  Time Out Magazine.

“Murray Raine is one of Australia’s greatest living puppeteers. His energy and passion explode from the stage with each song, and as with any truly great puppeteer, there is a palpable sense of “the other” in the character…. He is an incredible performer, putting on a technically sophisticated one-man show.” Australian Arts Review.
