Curious Creatures - Presented by Squashbox Theatre

Date: Saturday 22nd July 2017
Time: 14:00

Squashbox Theatre :

'Curious Creatures'

Welcome to theCurious Creatures’ wildlife park, established by Jeremiah Johnson: world-renowned explorer, zoologist and animal collector. Nobody knows more about animals than him.

Unfortunately, Jeremiah Johnson is currently lost somewhere in the jungles of Africa, so he has handed the running of the park over to his inexperienced nephew Craig… and things don’t quite go as planned.
 
Expect to meet curious creatures of all shapes and sizes: from performing fleas, skateboarding snails and gymnastic gerbils to an irritable alligator, an over-excited elephant, and a very intelligent orang-utan!

Learn about how animals evolved, how their amazing adaptations help them survive in the wild, and how animals can help us learn more about ourselves. After all, we’re all related if you go back far enough!
 
Using puppets, comedy, slapstick and live music - plus lots of amazing natural history facts - Squashbox Theatre will uncover the mysteries of the animal kingdom.

“Johnson's natural rapport and good humoured fun with the young people make this an absolute celebration of all that is good about theatre for children.”; Petra Schofield, Whatsonstage.com

"Craig's success lies in the fact that he talks to, rather than at, his young audience, and he does it all with a huge sense of joy and fun that is as inspiring as it is infectious…. An engaging entertainer to be treasured.”; Frank Ruhrmund, ‘The Cornishman’

 “Craig Johnson is totally at ease with his audience, adult and child alike, and combines an innate understanding and joy in storytelling with fantastic comic and musical skill.”;
Mike Shepherd, Founder and Artistic Director, Kneehigh Theatre
