Company: Squashbox Theatre
Squashbox Theatre presents:
Welcome to the ‘Curious Creatures’ wildlife park, established by Jeremiah Johnson: world-renowned explorer, zoologist and animal collector. Nobody knows more about animals than him.
Unfortunately, Jeremiah Johnson is currently lost somewhere in the jungles of Africa, so he has handed the running of the park over to his inexperienced nephew Craig… and things don’t quite go as planned.
Expect to meet curious creatures of all shapes and sizes: from performing fleas, skateboarding snails and gymnastic gerbils to an irritable alligator, an over-excited elephant, and a very intelligent orang-utan!
Learn about how animals evolved, how their amazing adaptations help them survive in the wild, and how animals can help us learn more about ourselves. After all, we’re all related if you go back far enough!
Using puppets, comedy, slapstick and live music - plus lots of amazing natural history facts - Squashbox Theatre will uncover the mysteries of the animal kingdom.
50 mins long, Suitable children aged 5+ and their families
(No animals were harmed in the making of this show. But several puppets were mildly traumatised.)
Please Note: This is an Outdoor Event
You are welcome to bring rugs, blankets or camping chairs to sit on (The Arts Centre is not providing chairs for outdoor gigs).
If you are bringing camping chairs to sit on, please note you will be asked to sit towards the back of the audience, so not to block the view for others who are sitting on blankets/rugs. Thank you.
The event will go ahead whatever the weather.
