Edward Lear’s Nonsense

Category: Show Related artist: Rough Magic Theatre

Lovely singing, beautifully made puppets and a truly ingenious concept

(Audience comments at Skipton Puppet Festival).

This is with a single performer and artificial amplification is available. Each performance lasts roughly 10min and is suitable for a small family audience, but can be performed multiple times in a set (3 shows per 30min set).

A comedy walkabout shadow puppet show with live singing of original music performed with a mobile shadow theatre in a suitcase. A truly nonsensical story with food for clothes,
“beasticles, birdlings and boys” and what happens when the two come together.

Amongst others this show is suitable for Literature, Victorian, Food, Fashion and animal themed events with corresponding costumes available! Illuminated costume is also available for night-time events.
