A new interactive puppet show for children, recommended age 4 to 8. Performed by Joanna Neary. Written by Joanna Neary and Joseph Nixon, songs by Heather Minor. Directed by Emma Edwards.

Duration: 45-50 minutes


Marina The Marine Explorer tells the story of Scuttle The Crab. When Lucy gets into a pickle on the beach, she asks a funny looking crab for help. Lucy doesn't know that Scuttle The Crab longs to be human. Can Lucy make his dreams come true? Should Scuttle The Crab be careful what he wishes for? Marina needs some help to make life in the rock-pools good again for everyone.

An original and delightful comedy show with the chance for the audience to help save the day. Art materials provided.

Award winning comedian Joanna Neary starred in two CBBC series So Awkward as Mrs Jones The Librarian, appeared in Young Dracula and My Mad Fat Diary, and has made many successful stage shows for children in recent years.

Our kids loved getting involved and it was entertaining for the whole audience. Highly recommended.
