◊ The Pram Show
Never before have so many monkeys featured in one pram!
The Pram Show provides great fun for all the family presenting a colourful cast of monkeys of all shapes and sizes. When you’re dealing with ape antics, you never know what’s going to happen next!
The Pram Show is a fast-paced succession of skits with lots of action and audience participation. It’s a madcap show that leaves children talking about the “funny monkeys” for months afterwards.
Available as a 40 or 50 minute show featuring “Special Guest Puppet” OZONE - The Space Creature from the plant Rectangula.
◊ Harlequin's Puppet Theatre
Harlequin is Italy’s most popular clown. Now MURPHYS PUPPETS have brought this lovable rascal to Australia and adapted his zany antics for Australian audiences.
Harlequin has arrived in his most famous form of theatre - the puppet show booth. These high-energy, witty shows appeal as much to adults as they do to children.
The Comedies are available in English or Italian.
◊ Allenby's FAMOUS Flea Circus
Impresario Artemus Allenby presents his FAMOUS Flea Circus performed by fleas who have followed the circus tradition for generations. (25,356 generations to be exact).
See the French sesquicecenntenn-tuplet acrobats, The Bubonic Brothers, demonstrating their microscopic skills. See the diminutive daredevil Fearless Francine perform “The Leap of Death”.It’s great tongue-in-cheek fun for all ages.
◊ Roving Puppets
This is Puppetry up close and personal. A roving puppeteer takes a puppet out and about to meet and greet, interacting with passers-by.
Very popular at festivals.
“Some Remarks Upon the Remarkable Art of Falconry" uses Puppetry for a farcical take on Falconry.
Presenting the ‘lecture’ Showman Artemus Allenby endeavours to put his falcons through their paces. Spouting his own peculiar brand of commentary meant to be ‘educational’, Allenby gets totally tangled up with his birds and his words.
Perfect for Medieval festivals or as entertainment at corporate functions.
(The ‘lecture’ is clean adult entertainment but a shorter family version is also available.)
(ALSO AVAILABLE is our Adult-Only production. ‘The Unfortunate Fart’ - a Bawdy Renaissance Tale of High Finance and Low Flatulence. Ring us for details)
