2014 Streets Acts from Thingumajig Theatre

Thingumajig Theatre’s Street Acts for 2014

Big, surprising, colourful and connecting with the child in all of us, Thingumajig Theatre’s menagerie of giant puppets and walkabouts are waiting in the wings to bring fun and festivities to your outdoor (or large indoor!) event.

“It is always a pleasure to work with Thingumajig – we regularly book their shows, partly as they are so good at interacting with audiences of all ages – and they are a friendly and professional team too”
Maggie Clarke, Director (XTRAX)

Beautifully hand-made, with high quality production values and that little bit of puppet magic, we have a free-range collection of characters guaranteed to make the punters smile. See below for details of Thingumajig shows which are touring throughout 2014...

*** NEW FOR 2014 ***
JELLISH

The ocean is broken. Legions of jellyfish are filling the seas, clogging harbours, lining beaches - are they trying to tell us something? This bloom of giant illuminated jellyfish transforms night time streets or festival fields into a strange and magical in-between world, complete with live mixed surround sound.
Number of performers: 7
Duration: Up to two 40 minute walkabout sets per evening

FLYING DODOS

Despite all the odds, an unknown subspecies of the dodo has been discovered! Much larger than their extinct cousins and able to fly (sort of), Charles and Amelia, two relics of a bygone era, are very excited to be travelling the world to see what they’ve been missing.
Number of performers: 2
Duration: Up to three 40 minute walkabout sets per day

HIPPOCHONDRIAC

Part animal and part mechanical, Hieronymus the hippo is feeling under the weather. Fortunately, his companion doctor/mechanic is only too eager to show you what’s under the bonnet to diagnose the problem. What follows is an array of puppet shows built into the troubled creature, revealing the origin of his malaise.
Number of performers: 2
Duration: Up to three 40 minute walkabout sets per day

PLUCKY

Meet Plucky: our very big, very friendly and possibly over curious chicken. Accompanied by her hen-pecked sidekick, Plucky guarantees to bring fun, farmyard frolics, music and song to everyone. Egg-xactly what your event needs!
Number of performers: 2
Duration: Up to three 40 minute walkabout sets per day

YESHE THE YAK

Yeshe is a gentle, mysterious and curious yak. He’s very fond of children especially those who might carefully stroke his nose or tickle his fringe. He is a one-person puppet about 6 feet tall and 12 feet long with a very articulate and emotive head, and is accompanied by a handler.
Number of performers: 2
Duration: Up to three 40 minute walkabout sets per day

SUN BIRDS

Whether at rest or flying, our three spectacular Sun Birds will bring a dynamic magic to any parade or event. Four metres tall with a 5 metre wingspan, these puppets are made to catch the wind allowing them to soar and have a constant animation.
Number of performers: 1 bird = 4 performers; additional 3 performers for each additional bird
Duration: Up to three 40 minute walkabout sets per day
