Should Scuttle The Crab be careful what he wishes for? Meanwhile, Marina The Marine Explorer needs some help to make life in the rock-pools good again for everyone. An original and beautifully crafted comedy show about friendship, home and the environment, with the chance for the audience to help save the day. Art materials provided.

Duration: 45-50 minutes

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

Tickets: £5

Character comedian Jo Neary (Mrs Jones in CBBC’s So Awkward) brings her observational brilliance and off-kilter wit to this interactive puppet show for children.

Marina the cleaner is due to present a talk ‘Housework World. Tidying Fun for All the Family’. But her sensible conference is thrown into messy chaos with the impending arrival of Lady Peggy Valerie Mallory, Patron of The Arts.

Marina is joined in her mission by a cast of characters, and children are encouraged to take part if they like. Using improvisation, songs and stories, the show is about what it is to be creative, looking at art and being in a gallery.

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