The Walrus and the Carpenter
Take a stroll with the Walrus and Carpenter to find a picnic spot for a fantastic fishy feast!
This oddly matched pair (of ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS fame), accompanied by a capricious Maid with Mop, make entertaining company for all.
Loosely based on Lewis Carroll’s poem, this show/walkabout for all ages is led by a large weepy Walrus puppet and his lugubrious chippy companion.
Expect hilarity, eye-watering recitation, music and slapstick in a salty combination of theatre and haute cuisine.
Workshop available before the show, but with limited spaces. The workshop should be booked separately.
THE WALRUS & THE CARPENTER has an optional accompanying workshop where children make their own hats and oysters – which can actually be fed to the Walrus. These are made using arts and crafts materials – some of which are recycled items, mostly newspaper, making it as eco-friendly as possible.
If taking place prior to the performance, they can wear these hats and with this are more engaged in the show.
All items produced by the children and older friends can be taken away as a reminder of the great time they’ve had!
The Workshop will be held in The Jetty just a stone's throw from the theatre!
Show approx 40 minutes / Workshop approx 1.5 – 2 hours with break (starting at 1.00pm
