The Lost Forest

Puppet theatre for ages 5 and over / families


There's magic and mayhem in the rainforest! Animals' homes are at risk as bulldozers and diggers crash their way through trees and foliage. Who will come to the rescue and fight the evil Endorro? Can we save the rainforest? The Lost Forest takes a vital concern and turns it into a fun and dynamic show, using Wayang Golek (colourful rod puppets from West Java), stunning rainforest projections, shadow theatre and original music.

Duration 50 mins (+ time to meet the puppets)

"Excellent, full of magic and wonder, very cleverly presented and extremely entertaining"
