Marvellous Imaginary Menagerie: Outdoor

Roll up, roll up, for the most mysterious, magical and magnificent experience of your life! An enormous exotic caravan has suspiciously arrived in town complete with strange characters that entertain, amuse and beguile. Are you ready to watch and learn from the Les Enfants Terribles’ Marvellous Imaginary Menagerie?

The Marvellous Imaginary Menagerie is an outdoor experience like no other. We toured various locations around the UK and performed to grown-ups and little ones alike, answering important questions such as how many legs does a ‘Decapus’ have? Is the fabled ‘Massive Paw’ just a myth? Have you ever seen a ‘Bumblewasp’? What do you feed a ‘Whistling Pank’?

Led by the zany Dr. Longitude and his strange travelling players, the show is made up of mesmerizing stories of wit, virtue and courageous endeavours all bursting from each character’s weird and wonderful imagination.

This show was so popular, we produced both an indoor and outdoor version and played to audiences nationwide as the world’s weirdest wonder emporium!
