Fairytales and Food Frog and hands

“I just wanted to say a very big thank you for your wonderful show this weekend.   It made me smile, laugh and be amazed.    Your glass puppet took the audience’s breath away!  I came along this weekend for the 2nd time with my 5 yr old daughter and both of us had a magical time.  Thank you very much indeed for the pleasure it gave us.”

Once Upon a Time Cafe

 The chef’s got the hump and done a bunk and the waitress and resident musician at the Once Upon a Time Café are left to fill the orders.  Adventure, love, wicked characters and happy endings are on the story menu but the chef has left only a few ingredients – a golden ball and a frog's foot.

The puppeteers concoct a modern and stylish interpretation of the classic story "The Frog Prince".  For this show the company has crafted exquisite hand carved wooden puppets, shadow puppets and a stunning 'crystal' marionette.

The show is accompanied with live music played on an octave mandolin designed and created specifically for the show by Steve Coupe.
