an impressive force in storytelling through puppetry The Australia Times
…gloriumptious blend of comedy and puppetry Fourth Wall Media

Presented by Spare Parts Puppet Theatre

World class puppetry paired with the world's greatest storyteller for children.

 Roald Dahl’s The Twits is a comedy of rebellion and justice in which Muggle-Wump the monkey races to outwit Mr and Mrs Twit, two of most terrible and disgusting people ever to have lived. Playfulness and tricks are more successful than following the rules in this classic Roald Dahl story, making it fantastically well suited to the imaginative world of puppet theatre.
 
The performers bring characters to life in the blink of an eye, using hand held puppets in a simple stage setting, highlighting the playfulness of live performance. The Cubist art movement of the 20th century has inspired Leon Hendroffs’ puppet designs which bring together the monstrous features of the Twits with an ingenious
soundscape.
 
Appealing to children and families with its promise of fun and ‘silliness’, this story also champions the kindhearted with an underlying warm sentiment.
 

Running Time: 50mins no interval + 10min Q&A
Suitable for ages 5-12
