We have a treasure trove of tales and tunes from Cornwall and all around the world, to suit any theme you are working with. We invite your group to join in with percussion, song or rhyme, becoming story characters, making the sound of the whistling wind or crashing waves.  We can make instruments, puppets, craft, even devise new stories or music together.  It is a fun way to support various areas of learning, including literacy, speaking and listening.

The Sea Show is a quirky and hilarious mix of puppet show, natural history and comedy cabaret.

Meet crazy characters like Morwenna the ‘beautiful’ mermaid, Ruan the reformed seagull and salty seadog Captain Pemburthy, as well as a cast of mischievous sea-squirts, anemones, limpets, crabs and pilchards.

 Come and celebrate the sea with tall tales, silly slapstick, fantastic facts, live music and songs – unmissable fun for children and adults of all ages!

I have been performing The Sea Show for several years, and it has become a firm favourite with children and adults of all ages, who love the blend of ingenious puppetry, informal performance style and gently subversive sense of humour!
