ABOUT US

 

Peafrog Puppetry create compelling, original theatre with the aid of oddball puppets, live acoustic music and general tom-foolery! Based in the South West of England, we utilise a range of puppeteering disciplines - including Japanese bunraku, marionettes and even sock puppets - fused with the art of storytelling and blended with a catchy mixture of original music and songs. Our aim is to create diverse, thoughtful and immensely fun theatre designed for everyone. Peafrog’ also create and design bespoke puppets for stage and screen and run interactive workshops, providing puppetry tuition in theatres, colleges and drama societies for toddlers, teenagers and even grown-ups!

CURRENT PRODUCTION

 

Peafrog Puppetry have expanded! Our productions are now produced by our brand new company, Mumblecrust Theatre. We are currently in the process of organising our 2017 tour of 'The Tale of the Cockatrice'! We'll be visiting England, Wales and Scotland so check out the Mumblecrust Theatre site and find out more about the show and where you can see it.

 

PAST PRODUCTIONS

 

In 2014 we produced 'Murder at Monishing Manor', successfully funded by Kickstarter.

 

MURDER AT MONISHING MANOR

 

"Lady Monishing is hosting yet another of her infamous dinner parties for her nearest and dearest. The cook and the maid have been making preparations, the guests are arriving, what could possibly go wrong!? Murder. Obviously. A load of people get murdered. It says it in the title...so there's no spoilers there..."

 

A ridiculous comedy musical set in a 1920s English Manor house, "Murder" as it is fondly known by people working on the project, is full of fun, friendship and fatalities!

 

To find out how we made the puppets for this production, check our our Portfolio page to see construction images and even a time-lapse video about making one of the characters!
