Percy Pengelly and the wibble-wobble took place in April 2023. We are currently exploring where we might pop up with Percy next... join our mailing list to stay in the loop! 

Roll up roll up roll up… ladies and gentlemen it’s time to join the fantastical Percy Pengelly in his more than marvellous Cornish big top!


Wibble-wobble your way through Percy’s tall tale of ups and downs as he searches for a new career in Cornwall. Witness his fall from world-famous tightrope walker to super dooper pooper scooper before reaching the giddy heights of fishing port rooftops. Find out what the future has in store for Percy Pengelly in our BRAND NEW live-action production performed in the round in a beautifully reimagined circus top. 

Percy Pengelly and the wibble-wobble was a high-energy show that was performed in Percy’s Big Top at Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens, Gulval, near Penzance, over the Easter holidays in 2023. Featuring familiar Cousin Jack's faces from our much-loved stage adaptation of The Mousehole Cat, it was directed by Guy Watson.

This is family theatre designed to be enjoyed by adults and children of all ages, in fact the company is very proud that many adults attend its performances without children. Guy says “Family theatre really should be high-quality performances that can be enjoyed by absolutely everyone. We believe that you are never too old or young to lose yourself in new and imaginative worlds! Our work is not your average “hello boys and girls...” style offering and is specifically designed for the whole family to enjoy together - we create our own community for just over an hour where old friends sit with new friends to share a heart-warming story.”

'Ere what do 'e think o' Percy then?

“SPLANN!!!!! Stinkingly good!”

“The children were full of it when we got home yelling… all about the poo (of course!)”

“I loved all the special touches, the sign language, the rainbows on the tops, the Cornish flag elephant ears, the reimagined Cornish songs, the Kernewek, and the newspaper articles!!! It was really wonderful and imaginative.”

“An embodiment of the book without being a cardboard cutout.”

“We have seen The Mousehole Cat and Percy Pengelly and they were both amazing.”

"Amazing show today. We laughed so much and the kids had great smiles on their faces the whole time!"
