Puppet Shows

Armchair Puppet Theatre's two main puppet shows are performed with beautiful handmade glove, rod and shadow puppets in colourful detailed wooden theatre sets.

Burglar Bill & cat Merryweather and the Cuckoo
“Burglar Bill”
by Janet and Alan Ahlberg
“Small Wonder”
by Tony Jones

In both puppet shows there is a fascinating shadow puppet scene that has provided an important link between our puppet performances and shadow puppet workshops.

Our puppetry is suitable for children and adults of all ages, and is designed for Theatre, Arts Centre, School, Library, Pre-School Group, Playscheme and Party audiences as small as 10-15 and up to 150-200 maximum.


"The Armchair Puppet Theatre performance was enjoyed by the children and their mums and dads."
