Long ago when all the world was wood the
most fearsome foe was the one that breathed fire…
The makers of ‘Chicken Licken’ and ‘Terry Jones
Fairy Tales’ bring the story of Tom Thumb to life in an exciting
adventure for 4-9 year old children and their families. The very
first folk story ever printed in English in 1621 mixes a legend
set in the times of King Arthur with Celtic folklore. This epic
tale of the smallest hero in the world is told with superb puppetry,
music and fantastic design. This tale is always told in times of
great change, when we know the world our children will live in is
going to be very different. Celebrating nature, with sensory play
and participation, children are encouraged to explore their local
natural environments, with music to sing along to.
Celebrating 21 years of making theatre for families DNA Puppetry
and Visual Theatre’s previous productions ‘Baba Yaga
Boney Legs’ and ‘Puss in Boots’ astounded family
audiences in theatres, outdoor events and festivals.
“When it comes to making children’s theatre, it’s
clear DNA Puppetry and Visual Theatre are part of the upper crust”
Children will learn puppetry basics from
a professional puppeteer, bringing characters from well known stories
to life using objects and figures.
