Jude Perl: Participation Award

An entertaining musical comedy exploration of bullying and our school system, featuring Jude Perl’s unique brand of stream-of-consciousness style song writing, Participation Award presents a historically accurate (*citation needed) show, which begs the age-old question – why does school suck so much?

Is it the compulsory sporting events? The one size fits all grading methods? Maintaining your precarious position in a volatile social food chain? Or is it just the arbitrary bullying?

Delivered with her signature high-energy, highawkward, vulnerable-when-no-one-asked-her-to-be musical storytelling, Jude explores confrontation through the ages (her ages).

Jude Perl is a multi-award winning singer, songwriter and comedian based in Melbourne. In her hometown, she has created a name for herself by writing and performing hilarious, yet brutally honest, stream-of-consciousness style lyrics, set to undeniably catchy and well-crafted songs.

Duration: 60 minutes

Note: Recommended for ages 15+

"These songs are not only funny, but also infinitely better composed than many of the songs on commercial radio." - AU Review
