1980, 48 Minutes.

Spike Milligan takes a look at the Australian fringe theatre scene and finds a colourful, somewhat offbeat array of acting and writing talent.

Amazing Scenes was created to showcase successful performers who started out on the fringe: young experimental talent, theatre used for a social purpose, pub theatre and comedians. Its participants are so diverse and they cover so much material that it could be considered a film about Australia, rather than just about Australian theatre.

The featured talent includes David Argue, Cappriccios, Circus Oz, Clowneroonies (featuring Geoffrey Rush), Kirribilli Pub Theatre, Reg Livermore, Lobotomy Brothers, Los Trios Ringbarkus, Alan Pentland, Rod Quantock, Sideshow, St Martin's Youth Art Centre and the Women's Circus.
