If you like Dungeons and Dragons see this show!

If you like the art of story telling see this show!

If you want a standup comedy act or your standard Melbourne Comedy Festival fair then this is not for you.

The guys from the Dice Paper Roll podcast take you on a journey with some wacky fantasy characters set at a range of movie studios.

The content is primarily improvised with a very relaxed attitude to the rules of D&D as a vessel for the light hearted narrative.

My colleague a big fan of the game was surprised the characters were able to achieve their objectives even when rolling some very low numbers. I concurred it would be nice for the missions to fail and the story to bend and break in a live fashion according to the dice.

Dice Paper Roll is relaxed fun for anyone wanting to escape into a fantasy world for an hour, plus the audience gets to contribute the sound effects!

Most read Melbourne reviews

  • The Choir of Man
    This is a really well put together production, a great night out and so incredibly worthy of the success its found in venues around the world.
  • Groundhog Day The Musical
    This is more than just a screen to stage relocation, this a heartfelt re-examination seeking, discovering and transposing essence.
  • Smash It | Circus Oz
    This kooky show is intergenerational mayhem at its finest, with cast members representing millennial, Gen Zs, Baby Boomers and everything in between.
  • Luzia | Cirque du Soleil
    Luzia is a jumble of imagery all wrapped up in spectacular environments that include a vertical waterfall raining down like a tapestry on a loom and a plunge pool for an aerialist to thrash in and out of.
  • Wicked – The Musical
    Extraordinary in scale and spectacle, Wicked is classic big budget musical gorgeousness, but froth and bubble aside, it’s also laced with depth in its narrative.
