The movie shows us the value of assisting friends when they need help! When children’s entertainers, The Silly Billies, hear that their Circus friends are in trouble with an unscrupulous bank manager, they decide to help Save the Circus! Mayhem, fun and laughter flows as The Silly Billies create chaos under the Big Top Tent. Will a bright Red Kangaroo way up high on the Wheel of Death help save the circus? Maybe not… but it looks awesome anyway!
Produced in Noosa Heads on Queensland’s beautiful Sunshine Coast. This movie is Australia’s first ever independent children’s feature film! The film has been curated by the National Film and Sound Archive as a film of great national interest. Like the movie Grease (Olivia Newton-John) and a number of other well known films, The Silly Billies started as a successful touring live show before launching onto cinema screens.
