Marvellous Imaginary Menagerie: Indoor

Roll up; roll up and join Dr Longitude on his hilarious, puppet – packed quest for imaginary animals in the most ‘magnifical’, ‘tremendible’ and ‘fantasticulous’ show in town!

Watch the caravan of curiosities and its crew of mysterious misfits as they discover if bumblewasps are poisonous, what whistling panks eat, what happens when you lick trisillian toads, and whether the fabled Brian May Cow actually exists?

Help them answer these and more pointless questions in a ludicrously lyrical and magically musical tour from the acclaimed creators of Alice’s Adventures Underground, The Trench, and Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs.

An indoor theatre version of the silliest, funniest and most entertaining family show to date – suitable for big kids and small grown-ups!


Directed by James Seager & Oliver Lansley

"Puppets, sing-alongs and wondrous stories for all the family; this brilliantly bonkers hour is one not to be missed"


"There wasn’t a child in the audience that wasn’t squealing with delight"


"Better than any family show has a right to be"


"A beautifully realised, pacey production performed with great panache"


"If Roald Dahl and Tim Burton had ever met and decided to open a travelling circus, the result might have been something close to Les Enfants Terribles’ superb storybook world"
