Did you catch Channel 10’s evergreen “Totally Wild” show last week? If you did you may have spotted a familiar face as the program featured one of our state’s youngest large-scale Lego builders, with a stellar segment about Connor and his amazingly detailed Her Majesty’s Theatre mega-build!
If you missed it that’s ok, as Channel 10 has it available now on their TenPlay website: https://tenplay.com.au/channel-eleven/totally-wild/season-25/episode-60/
(The segment on Connor’s Brick starts at approximately 20:40 into the above video.)
An icon in Adelaide’s Gouger St since 1913 when it was known as the Tivoli, this beautiful building features a gorgeous facade that Connor has recreated in all it’s glory with nothing but Lego. And it looks outstanding!
To find out more about the restoration project, a website with History and future plans for the site has been created with a special message from Barry Humphries himself. Looking forward to it as it’s a great venue, and deserves to stay that way for years to come: http://www.hermajestystheatre.org.au
Debuting at this years Brickalaide 2018 and winning the Under 16 Best in Show prize, this build was an enormous recreation of the soon-to-be-renovated Her Majesty’s Theatre complex complete with interior main stage and even a cheeky appearance from Dame Edna on the balcony. Building this at 14 years old is a massive achievement!
Connor and Connor’s Bricks have also recently been covered on the Adelaide Now website in a great article – https://www.adelaidenow.com.au/entertainment/arts/her-majestys-theatre-renovation-built-in-lego-bricks-by-connor-brennan-for-brickalaide-competition/news-story/03ff22b1936e4c44be925c068a20afa0
Congrats Connor and Peter!
