Mumblecrust Theatre is an award-winning theatre company based in the South West of England. Co-Artis- tic Directors Katie Underhay and Anthony Burbridge came together to fill a niche in children’s theatre, where slightly older children often get left out. From this collaboration, The Tale of the Cockatrice was born.
The pair have collaborated on a number of other projects, including: satirical music video Tawdry Child, Pinecone Penguin’s King Kong the Musical, puppeteering the Mermaid in Luc Mollinger’s creature feature short The Mermaid of Mevagissey and co-directing (and creating puppets for) new musical Heartwood.
“Cleverly choreographed with wit and humour to capture the imagination and enslave the senses.”
– Jemma Mcintyre (Edinburgh Fringe)
“Full of character and whimsy, the range of imaginatively-created puppets and lovely
harmony-filled songs accompanying the performance were thoroughly captivating and entertaining. Our group (ranging from 7yrs to 66) loved it.” – Clare Littlemore (Brighton Fringe)
“A great performance, highly original. My 8 year old boy adored it and has been re-enacting it ever since!”
– Natasha Pester (Theatre Shop, Clevedon)
We are delighted to bring this fantastic show to West Buckland and hope you will support this fabulous production!
