Barmpot Theatre is gearing up to take PENGUINPIG on a national tour this spring and summer. It is very exciting for us too. This fun-filled puppetry show has taught us many things from its content on e-safety to puppetry, it has taken us to places across the nation, and made us laugh alongside their young audience. We have hummed their gorgeous music and have enjoyed working with their talented creators. We have been supporting the show for years now, and this year is set to be even greater. - Now we count in years, guys. Clearly I couldn't keep the excitement to say Pulp & Pith is no longer a toddler; we turn 3 this year!
Based on the best-selling picture book by Lincolnshire author and teacher Stuart Spendlow, illustrated by Amy Bradley, PENGUINPIG tells with beautiful puppetry, catchy songs and accompanied by an original music score a magical theatrical experience for 3 - 8 year olds and their families about the Internet. A story that is accessible on many levels, Penguinpig has plenty of engaging charm whilst carrying an important message for older children to consider with their grown-ups.
We invite you and your little ones to enter this world with us. Find below a list of dates/venues. All the details of the tour can be found on their Facebook event too!
