About the event

Learn about how animals evolved, how their amazing adaptations help them survive in the wild, and how animals can help us learn more about ourselves. After all, we’re all related if you go back far enough!

Animals are amazing! There are big ones, little ones, scaly ones, furry ones, friendly ones and scary ones! There are over 8 million different species of animal on earth today and in this show we're going to meet all of them! (Ok, not all of them, but quite a few).

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 Johnson 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.

Learn about how animals evolved, how their amazing adaptations help them survive in the wild, and how animals can help us learn more about ourselves. After all, we’re all related if you go back far enough!

Using puppets, comedy, slapstick and live music - plus lots of amazing natural history facts - Squashbox Theatre will uncover the mysteries of the animal kingdom.

Suitable children aged 5+ and their families

(No animals were harmed in the making of this show. But several puppets were mildly traumatised.)
