Organised by: Artsreach

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! 

This show is part of the Artsreach Creative Summer Programme for Children,  and is suitable 5+

*Post-show puppet making workshop also available.

Artsreach is a registered charity that brings high quality performances of live theatre, music, dance and family shows to the heart of rural communities across Dorset.

Artsreach is dedicated to providing people in rural areas with the opportunity to choose and promote professional arts events in their local venue.

Our performance programme runs through a network of around 50 volunteer promoting groups and together we organise over 140 high quality professional events every year, usually in village halls, right across rural Dorset.

Not only do our events provide the opportunity to enjoy high quality arts on your doorstep, they are also a great social occasion!

The income generated from audience members purchasing tickets plays a vital role in supporting both Artsreach as a scheme, and the community venues in which events take place, as event box offices are split between both parties.

We are an Artsmark Supporter and Arts Award Partner - do get in touch to find out how we can work together!
