Curious Creatures is a quirky and inventive puppet show for children aged 5+ and their families. You and your little ones can expect to meet animals of all shapes and sizes. From performing fleas, skateboarding snails and gymnastic gerbils to irritable alligators, over-excited elephants, and a very intelligent orang-utan!

Find out about how animals evolved, how their amazing adaptations help them survive in the wild, and how animals can help us learn more about ourselves. After all, we’re all related if you go back far enough!

Welcome to the Curious Creatures wildlife park, established by Jeremiah Johnson: world-renowned explorer, zoologist and animal collector. Nobody knows more about animals than him.

Unfortunately, Jeremiah Johnson is currently lost somewhere in the jungles of Africa, so he has handed the running of the park over to his inexperienced nephew Craig… and things don’t quite go as planned.

Using puppets, comedy, slapstick and live music – plus lots of amazing natural history facts – Squashbox Theatre will uncover the mysteries of the animal kingdom.

“Just to let you know that it’s now October and the Chicken of Doom is still making appearances at our house. Pictures, stories, homework: he’s everywhere!”  Audience feedback, Minack Theatre. 

“We loved Curious Creatures at the Minack last Thursday. Jago (20 months) was absolutely transfixed – a great first theatre performance for him.”
