Long Nose Puppets
by Polly Dunbar
A spectacular theatre experience this Christmas for all ages based on the award-winning book by Polly Dunbar.
Ben is delighted when he rips open his present, inside is a penguin.
"Hello Penguin!" says Ben.
Penguin says nothing.
Ben tickles Penguin; he pulls his funniest face; he puts on a happy hat, sings a silly song and does a dizzy dance.
Penguin says nothing..so Ben fires Penguin into OUTER SPACE, Penguin comes back to earth without a word!
It isn't until a passing lion intervenes that Penguin finally speaks...and when he does, Ben discovers something that was really worth the wait. Penguin is exiting, surreal and full of surprises.
The lively songs by Tom Gray of Gomez will have everyone joining in! It’s a spectacular theatre experience for all ages-especially 3-7 year olds!
‘Take an hour out to restore your faith in all that is good about being alive with Long Nose Puppets’ Penguin.’ The Argus
‘Penguin addresses themes of anger, danger and love, and encourages children to remember events, read pictures and laugh.’ The Times
