A Little Bit of Blue 2048 x 1153

There are strange disappearances from Mrs Mavis Hooley’s home. Little things go missing: clothes pegs; a teacup; a ball of wool. But then the thief takes it just one step too far, and a detective is called in. Can you help him solve the case?

All while helping to unravel a mystery, the audience will learn about the extraordinary habits of the Australian Satin Bowerbird, and why they are so fascinated by the colour blue.

puppetry of paper workshop

A Little Bit of Blue Workshop 2048 x 1153
Scrunch, rip, twist, tear! How many things can you do with a piece of paper?

This workshop is based on Bunraku-style puppetry, a traditional Japanese form of theatre which involves multiple puppeteers working closely together to operate one puppet. Workshop participants will start by making a unique puppet out of paper. They will then learn techniques for bringing their puppet to life, either as individuals or as a team.


Little Wing Puppets specialise in original heart-warming puppet shows, full of big ideas and fun, all packed up and ready to travel to family audiences.  Through their performances and workshops, young people are invited to become part of the theatrical experience rather than being simply spectators.
