crate puppet theatre

Welcome to The Crate Puppet Theatre. Darwin's smallest and most intimate venue!

A contemporary vision of the ancient and magical art of puppetry, clandestine delivery of stories delivered by characters barely 7 cm tall.

The crates intimacy is due to well, it is just that, a milk crate... There is one puppeteer and one audience member, the show is viewed through a peep hole and sound is via headphones.
