An intriguing, fun and interactive street puppet booth experience.... with popcorn! Perfect for festivals and community events.
What is it?
Clapper Box is a curious, participative puppet event featuring small-scale theatre booths, a lot of random objects and wonderfully written quirky adaptations of classic movies.
The public is both puppeteers and audience, sitting on either side of each mini-stage. They wear headphones through which they either receive directions or hear the story. This is a highly imaginative show, ‘playing’ with household objects whilst creating a new perspective on interactive theatre and storytelling.
It is a combination of puppetry and object manipulation, that is entertaining for both the performer and the audience. The stories/playlets are all linked to famous films to tie in with ‘Flicks in the Sticks’. Each audience member will be presented with a small cone of popcorn, a fun addition to the experience!
“Clever, fun and totally different. My teenage girls played the boxes all day long.
They loved it!”
“Yet again another amazing show from The Fetch, this one is perfect for festival audiences.”

“I was totally moved by the titanic box, it cost millions to make the film, but watching my wife perform it brought a tear to my eye. I had no idea how moving it would be”
