bernards puppet bonanza
a kids show for grown ups
The show starts as Bernard opens his booth for today's presentation to the public. He then gets prepared for the show ahead, introducing his cast of puppets to the crowd.
Once the show starts it's obvious that Bernard is keen but is unfortunately passed his prime. Forgetting his lines and mixing up the characters, turning the whole event into hilarious chaos. Special effects and audience participation add to the wonderful choreographed madness of this piece.
This is a fifteen minute performance featuring Bernard as a masked character who presents his glove puppet re-enactment of the fairy tale classic "Little Red Riding Hood".

Preferable against a wall or a hedge so that the public do not go wandering around behind it, away from any other loud shows or attraction. This is a show more suited to an out door venue, but would also work indoors in the right environment.
The show has been designed to be seen by 80 people at a time seated or standing in a semi-circle in front of the booth. Lights and sound will be supplied by the company and a 240 volt electrical power supply will be required.
