Tree Fellas

A hilarious, interactive comedy walkabout about a tree family looking
for somewhere to settle down.

As the forests are getting smaller and smaller the tree family decide
to live with the humans.

Two oversized trees and one sapling puppet talk, walk, tease and
misbehave and they have a story to tell…

Walkabout theatre for audiences of all ages.

Ernie’s Journey

Ernie’s Journey is a funny, fabulous and engaging show for young
people. They ingeniously incorporate a range of circus skills, spoken
word and audience interaction seamlessly into a crazy and appealing
kid’s adventure! – Deborah Baddoo – TYCA

Part of our funding was to undertake an extensive “covid proofing”
process to make the show work during these uncertain times. We can
therefore offer the show as a self-contained outdoor event in our
own tent with our own power supply
