Last time they visited we had over 500 people come and watch their show. This year Squashbox Theatre welcome us to the Curious Creatures wildlife park, established by Jeremiah Johnson: world-renowned explorer, zoologist and animal collector. Nobody knows more about animals than him.
Unfortunately, Jeremiah Johnson is currently lost somewhere in the jungles of Africa, so he has handed the running of the park over to his inexperienced nephew Craig… and things don’t quite go as planned...
Expect to meet curious creatures of all shapes and
sizes: from performing fleas, skateboarding snails and
gymnastic gerbils to irritable alligators, over-excited elephants, and a very intelligent orang-utan!
Learn about how animals evolved, how their amazing adaptations help them survive in the wild, and how animals can help us learn more about ourselves.
After all, we’re all related if you go back far enough!
Using puppets, comedy, slapstick and live music - plus lots of amazing natural history facts - Squashbox Theatre will uncover the mysteries of the animal kingdom.
When Eggy Met Peggy
What happens when the lonely egg, sat on a wall, meets the sparkling pea from under that huge pile of matresses?
Join Eggy and Peggy The Pea, a rock-n-rolling raspberry, cha cha-ing carrots and a blue horse in this deliciously funny and original twist on The Princess And The Pea. A feast of delightful puppetry, laughter and a stomping soundtrack to inspire adults and children alike.
Higher Beings Circus
Higher Beings Circus bring their incredible Mirror Men walkabout Theatre act, Stilt Bike displays and a Crazy Bikes area for everyone to have a go.
Chapel Dance Studio
Shepton's very own Chapel Hill Dance Studio run by Emma Hill will dazzle audiences with their amazing Dance through the Decades routines - featuring everything from Rock and Roll to Disco!
