Puppets from the pages of classic stories


  • Big and Small Shows
    to suit all sizes of libraries
    and all ages of children and their families.

    Pinocchio
    The Snow Queen
    Jack and The Beanstalk
    Hansel and Gretel

Shows last about 45 minutes, but can be 30 mins for events such as Fun Days.

Clive has worked in libary settings for many years and for many local authoriites, including Birmingham, Worcester, Wolverhampton, Sandwell, Dudley, and Northamptonshire

He understands the need for entertaining performances that are based in story-telling as well as how to work in public settings that are not primarily designed for performance

He knows that library staff are looking for someone who is reliable, well-organised and punctual and who can relate well with the public

If you have the space book a big show. If space is very tight, book a small show. 

All titles are available in both big and small versions.  A big show is like a Punch and Judy show but twice as wide (about 2 metres by 1 metre deep ) the small show has a smaller footprint (about 1 metre by 1 metre).  The playboard height is also much lower in the small theatre.  A small show is designed for smaller groups of smaller children - aged 3 - 6.  The big show is suitable for children of 4 and over.
