Didgeridoo Down Under is a high-energy, Australia-themed show that combines music, culture, science,  comedy, character building and audience participation. The didgeridoo, usually a hollow tree trunk, has been played by Aboriginal Australians for at least 1,500 years and is known for its otherworldly sound. But DDU is more than music. It’s interactive, educational, motivational and highly entertaining. You’ll learn about Aussie culture, animals and more, all while moving & grooving to the pulsing rhythms of the didge! (for all ages)
