We’re a puppet theatre company in Yorkshire who specialise in live, fun, family shows for all ages. With puppet theatre in the North and throughout the UK and childrens entertainment in Yorkshire and Lancashire, our hilarious, colourful and anarchic style continues to thrill audiences across the nation.

Our explosive and energetic performances, great music and beautifully made puppets, guarantee a fun and memorable time, whenever and wherever you see us!

Puppetry in The North

We are currently touring our version of Alice In Wonderland, a wonderful hour long, two person puppetry show. This brilliant musical play has gained rave reviews from audiences at packed houses across the UK. It is available to book for theatres, festivals and community spaces wherever you are. See our Alice page in the Shows section for more information on the show itself, and how you can book it for your event.

Our fabulous Shadow Puppet Suitcase show is also on the road, taking to the streets of The UK with a walkabout extravaganza. We are also happy to provide theatre and puppetry workshops for schools, community groups etc.

As a flexible and well established theatre company in Yorkshire, we can provide many other theatrical events anywhere in the country. This can include carnival puppets, singalongs, street acts and more, for any event that you are planning!


And More

We also offer childrens entertainment in Yorkshire and the North West. The Adventures of Jolly Rodger is a unique childrens show that mixes traditional party games with puppetry and storytelling. It is available for birthdays, weddings and any kind of event that you have planned in North Yorkshire and North Lancashire.
