Welcome to the Curious Creatures wildlife park, established by Jeremiah Johnson: world-renowned explorer, zoologist and animal collector. Nobody knows more about animals than him. Unfortunately, Jeremiah is currently lost somewhere in the jungles of Africa, so he has handed the running of the park over to his inexperienced nephew Craig, and things don’t quite go as planned. Expect to meet curious creatures of all shapes and sizes: from performing fleas, skateboarding snails and gymnastic gerbils to irritable alligators, over-excited elephants, and a very intelligent orangutan! Using puppets, comedy and live music, plus lots of amazing natural history facts, Squashbox Theatre will uncover the mysteries of the animal kingdom. No animals were harmed in the making of this show, but several puppets were mildly traumatised!
