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 re-imagined circus top.
Percy Pengelly and the wibble wobble is a high energy show and will be performed in Percy’s Big Top at Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens, Gulval near Penzance over the Easter holidays in 2021. Featuring many familiar Cousin’s Jack faces from our much-loved stage adaptation of ‘The Mousehole Cat’ and again will be directed by Guy Watson.
This is family theatre designed to be enjoyed by adults and children of all ages, in fact the company are very proud that many adults attend their 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.”
