Marionette Troupe – Puppet Show | UK
The Marionette Troupe has been delighting audiences of all ages, around the world, for almost half a century. Each of the one third life-size marionettes has been individually crafted to perform its own feat of dazzling dexterity on the big top stage. This traditional family show, now in its second generation, has been brought right up to date with all the thrills and spills of a real-life circus.
The circus has come to town! Come and be amazed by aerial acrobatics on the flying trapeze, spectacular cycling stunts and laugh at the antics of the cheeky clowns, one of whom takes the joke that bit too far – with disastrous consequences!
This show uses no less than 18 beautifully crafted trick marionettes and integrates the puppeteers into the circus performance, creating a buoyant and memorable piece of theatre for all ages.
Get-in time is 1hr 15 minutes and get-out time is 1 hr. The performance space should be 4m deep, 6m wide and 3m high. In addition the performers will require parking for 6m long van and a power point.
