Climb aboard the aquatic auditorium for their latest offering: Joey's Circus
. The playful adventure sees Mr Punch's pal, the entrepreneurial Joey the Clown, bring a circus troupe (and all their subsequent shenanigans) to an unsuspecting town. The dastardly Beadle hatches a plot to shut down the show, but the big top isn't going down without a fight. Joey just might manage to save the circus – with some help from his friends: Pretty Polly, Burglar Bill, and the Crocodile in this fresh take on the Punch & Judy tradition.
Be sure to bring the little ones down to the Puppet Theatre Barge to enjoy an intimate show in their atmospheric, 50-person theatre.
