Shoe Kangaroo and the Big Bad Boot

Event information

A rather lovely and clever children's show by one of England's leading puppet companies, of a magical baby joey's fantastical journey to an island of lost shoes, inhabited, understandably, by a menagerie of strange shoe (and handbag and hoover) creatures. Told with charming puppetwork and terrific clowning, this is a spellbinding show inspired by Spike Milligan and with a quirky Lewis Carroll flavour; you will never look at shoes in the same way again. 'The children were enthralled, totally caught up in the story.' Head Teacher, Great Barton Primary ______________________________________________________________________ Garlic Theatre is an international award winning puppet company based in Norfolk. Its innovative theatre work encourages imaginative play for the early years in schools and delights family audiences in the UK and around the world. 'Shoe Kangaroo' is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. ______________________________________________________________________
