HAND MADE PRODUCTS FOR YOUR HOME
We are currently offering the following shows:
An awesome adventure of Myth and Modernity inspired by that Ancient Greek classic, The Odyssey. Outwit greedy Monsters, escape the savage Cyclops, survive the sweet-singing Siren Sisters and overcome a sucking and spewing Whirlpool to save the day with the cleverest Greek hero of all time — Odysseus (he of Wooden Horse fame).
A Pandora’s Box of storytelling, theatre, song and buffoonery, puppets, props and participation, told by Oddy the great great great (etc) grandson of Odysseus.
Come to the pre show Playshop to make a
monster puppet and help create our own
brand new adventure to put in the show!
