Cinderella presented by Upfront Puppet Theatre
17/12/2017 - 03/01/2018
New production underway for Christmas.

Suitable for ages 4 to 94

Our new production of Cinderella will be a fun filled interpretation of the classic fairy story by Charles Perrault. It will be fully staged using a combination of rod and string puppets, special stage effects, scenery and lighting that will bring the show to life.

Cinderella will be helped by a slightly dotty Fairy Godmother who has to persuade her to wear a sparkly gown and to travel to the Princes ball in a stylish glass coach. The kitchen mice in the show are very ”street wise” and Guss the cat is a bit soppy. The two ugly sisters are desperate to marry the Prince and they dress in the latest fashion to attract his attention, but unfortunately their dress sense is not so good!

Will Cinderella make it back home before the clock strikes twelve and the Fairy Godmothers spell times out? Will the Prince find a girl who can wear the lost slipper, so that he can ask her to marry him? All will be revealed as our show unfolds.

Come and see a performance in the north of England's only dedicated 128 seat puppet theatre.

Hansel and Gretel Presented by Upfront Puppet Theatre - 26th July to 3rd Sept - Wednesdays, Fridays & Sundays
26/07/2017 - 03/09/2017

The production is a fully staged re-telling of a well known story written by the Brothers Grimm. Traditional marionette puppets perform in front of magical scenery which changes before your eyes. Can two innocent children survive when left alone in the forest? Hansel is quite smart, but it takes his sister Gretel to save the day. The show takes you on a journey into the woods, where the children are led by a magic bird to a house made of sweets. The witch leads them inside where she locks Hansel in a cage and plans to eat him. Gretel has a plan and tricks the witch, managing to push her into the oven and everything ends happily ever after. The show combines especially composed music and magical scenic effects in Cumbria's very own dedicated 128 seat puppet theatre, one of only four in England.

A meet the puppets question session with photographic opportunity follows the afternoon shows.
