Loosely based on Hansel and Gretel, except this story involves a bright little girl named Maggie and a t-rex who really wants to learn how to roar.
The show is very interactive and the audience get to tell the witch exactly what they think of her!
We also perform this show bilingually through English and Irish.
After the show we bring the puppets out to meet the audience. We get to discuss important topics such as what would you like to be when you grow up, compare superhero powers and who was the scariest character in the show. This is an opportunity where we can ask a question or make an announcement specific to the event organizers requirements.

How The Show Works
The show is performed from a portable Punch and Judy style booth so it can be used both indoor and outdoors (weather allowing). The audience sit on the ground in front of the booth.
We require one plug socket and an empty floor space
