DOUBLE BILL ‘Memory Keeper’ and ‘Jack’


We are now taking bookings for our fantastic new double bill ‘The Memory Keeper’ and ‘Jack’.
Enjoy TWO thirty minute shows in one great Night (or day) Out combining one classic comedy with a modern twist in the tale of ‘Jack’, followed by a beautiful and moving tale about the environment in ‘The Memory Keeper’.
With two thirty minute shows you can have a full length interval without disrupting the flow of the performance and allow your audience to relax and enjoy each show at your event as well as purchase concessions to benefit and fund raise for your venue or organisation.
Some more info on the two shows:
Jack: An outstanding visual comedy with a unique twist inspired by the tale of “Jack and the Beanstalk”. Adapted to be bi-lingual in English and Welsh, this show combines storytelling, comedy and tabletop puppetry. Suitable for all the family and ages, though please be aware there are giants!
The Memory Keeper: Originally created with the RSPB and inspired by the writings of Joann Rae, ‘The Memory Keeper’ tells a touching story of a child’s determination to save the environment that is being destroyed around her, and one mans realisation of what he has become. Using puppets, set and masks made from recycled materials, PuppetSoup awaken a utopia of wildlife and environment in this captivating and dramatic thirty minute show. This is a visual, non-verbal show made for adults and suitable for children.
Experienced Night Out providers, PuppetSoup include the following in your package:
Puppet making workshop – Usually provided a few hours before the show
Technical and Set Tour
Meet-and-greet the Puppets
We also provide you with high-quality marketing material for you to engage your community with the event.
We bring all required sound and light equipment, and just require a dark space, electricity and an audience to have a great Night Out!
Ideal stage size should be about 5m wide x 4m deep x 2.5 m high but these new shows are quite flexible.
If you would prefer just one of the shows for your venue we are happy to perform it twice in one day (perhaps the Memory Keeper for an environment themed event or ‘Jack’ for a school or children’s event).
Jack can be made available for quite small spaces so please do get in touch if you have a smaller venue!
Christine Smith will be managing this tour with us so please reply to both [email protected] AND [email protected] to make your booking and negotiate a date!
This show package is available in from July 2017.
Best wishes and hope to see you soon!
