A musical comedy that asks the question - why does school suck so much?!
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, high-awkward, vulnerable-when-no-one-asked-her-to-be musical story telling, Jude explores confrontation through the ages (her ages).
As it turns out, confrontation isn’t so hard if you just close your eyes, and imagine you are in a calmer, distant place… then all you have to do is move to that place, change your name and hair colour, and that way the person you are confronting has no way of ever finding you.
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.
Her last show ‘I Have A Face’ has won multiple awards, toured all over Australia to sold out audiences and has been widely praised for it’s unique voice and honesty.
