An award winning family show is on its way to Elliston as part of a regional South Australian tour organised through Country Arts SA's Shows On The Road program.

Tom Flanagan will take his silent slapstick acrobatic comedy show Kaput to the Elliston Community Hall on June 18.

Country Arts SA Elliston Presenter Group spokeswoman Julie Allchurch said it was great to have artistic shows like this travel to Elliston.

"Here in Elliston we have many people who love the arts and we are excited that Country Arts SA is bringing this fun family show, 'Kaput' to our community," she said.

Kaput features Mr Flanagan's 'elegant buffoon' character as his life goes upside-down by the lonely, dust covered world around him.

Mr Flanagan said regional tours were some of his favourite experiences as a performer.

"Even though I've been around the world with 'Kaput' I always find the communities in regional Australia the most warm and fun to play to," he said.

"I'm looking forward to meeting everyone around SA."

Kaput is Mr Flanagan's first solo show, which opened in 2012 and had previously won the Mervyn Stutter Spirit of the Fringe Award at the Edinburgh Fringe.

Tickets are available at the Elliston Community and Visitor Information Centre or online at countryarts.org.au.

The event is supported by Elliston District Council.
