Mr. Punch’s garbage pile nearly devours him!

This updated classic follows the troubles and travails of puppetry’s favorite loudmouth, Mr. Punch. Nothing ever goes right– his dog looks suspiciously like a skunk, his baby doesn’t behave, and crocodiles appear around every corner. The skillfully operated hand puppets are made of garbage and up-cycled material, and are chock full of surprises and tricks, as is the elaborate stage.

This ever-evolving saga changes with the seasons, and is always fresh, with new gags, and puppets constantly joining the cast.

The show is rounded out with live music played on a variety of instruments, from the ukulele to the bicycle pump. It’s a low-tech old-time spectacle, entertaining to children of all ages: from one to one hundred.
