About Puppet Panto
Puppet Panto is a new show for 2018 – about the spirit of improvisation.
Our company of puppets and performers are trying to put on a show. What will they do when things don’t quite go to plan?! Puppet Panto takes a playful look at everything that goes wrong in the process of presenting theatre in a seriously playful way.
Taking traditional pantomime stories and giving them a dose of Stuff & Nonsense’s trademark mischievousness and anarchy, this show is a bold and hilarious experience full of mishaps and inventiveness. From the team that brought you The Emperor’s New Clothes and The Gingerbread Man, join us for an hour of mayhem with some of our old favourite puppet friends and characters, alongside some new ones too!
Suitable for 3 plus, with no scary bits and no non-family friendly innuendo – this is a Panto truly for all the family!
