was founded by David Ladderman and Lizzie Tollemache.


The duo are actors, circus artists and variety entertainers who produce and tour original work from their home in Christchurch, New Zealand. Between them they have performed at over 50 festivals across 9 countries, and won numerous awards, including the Iron Chicken - the World Buskers Festival's prestigious critics choice award.


David and Lizzie regularly collaborate with The Loons Circus Theatre Company, Circotica and The Court Theatre. These companies provide a network of top tier contributing artists from circus, theatre and music that join Rollicking Entertainment for large scale projects.


Previous engagements have included the New Zealand Opera, “The Hobbit” world premiere, the 2011 Rugby World Cup and the 2015 Cricket World Cup. Last year saw Rollicking Entertainment entertaining people in theatres across Australia, on film, TV and radio across New Zealand and in a series of festivals across North America and the UK. They also share the dubious honour of having performed for New Zealand’s last two Prime Ministers.


Rollicking Entertainment travels all over the world, but they’re based in Christchurch, New Zealand. Travel and accommodation fees may apply for out-of-town or overnight bookings.
