Maplebeck Village Hall Eggs on Legs – Presented by Garlic Theatre
A Dr Seuss-inspired family show which follows a gang of puppets as they investigate an enormous egg that’s landed in their tree. Rib-tickling tunes are scrambled together with imaginative storytelling and a warmhearted approach which would crack even the hardest of shells.
‘Every day, from here to there, funny things are everywhere.’ Dr Seuss Taking inspiration from the original wacky wordsmith, Dr Seuss, Garlic Theatre has cooked up a family puppet show all about eggs on legs. These aren’t your common or garden poultry products, however; they’ve leapt from the frying pan into a magical world where an enormous egg has been blown into their tree. What secrets are hidden inside, and will they be able to save it from the jaws of a slithery snake? Combining a comedic score with a funny egg-centric story, this is a warmhearted production which would crack even the hardest of shells. Adults and children alike are mesmerised by the fantastically designed puppets, as well as the skillful manipulation performed by their puppeteer. The story unfolds in a poetic way which would make the Dr himself proud – especially the moments of pure side-splitting silliness. Garlic Theatre is a well-established company that has been touring the UK for 20 years. Their ‘trademark combo’ (Time Out) of hand-crafted puppets and humorous music has even seen them travel as far afield as Brazil and Taiwan, so this new show is an assured slice of family entertainment.
