Media Release: Supermarket tantrums at puppet theatre

By March 18, 2009No Comments

Entertain the children these school holidays with a visit to the Karralyka Theatre and enjoy a slapstick puppet show that will make sure that a trip to the supermarket will never be the same again.

Councillor Alex Makin urged families to book soon for the Thursday 9 April School Holiday Entertainment show Check Out! by the Polyglot Puppet Theatre.

“Their puppet tale is about the remarkable adventures of a tantrum throwing baby who is determined to get what she wants,” said Cr Makin.

“Filled with puppetry at its most inventive and cheeky, Baby meets shelf products which come to life, and a mischievous toddler, Speedy, who helps her discover that you need more than just ‘stuff’ to see you through,” said Cr Makin.

Check Out! is a muzak-filled slapstick puppet tale which will ensure that a trip to the supermarket will never be the same again.

Check Out! will be performed at the Karralyka Theatre, Mines Road, Ringwood East (Melways Map 50 A6).

Tickets are $13.50 per person or $45 for a family of four.
