PuppetCraft presents MONKEY! A fantastic production following the adventures of a comical, fantastical superhero, inspired by ‘Journey to the West’ a classic of Chinese literature.

The Lancaster Chinese Arts Festival will host two versions, a full theatrical performance of Monkey! for anyone from 4+ years in Preston and SuperMonkey a fun singalong experience for children
from 3-6 years in Lancaster.

Also try your hand at making and performing with the artist behind the production with our Shadow Puppet Making Workshops.

Brought to exuberant life by seldom seen exquisitely crafted marionettes, leaping and swinging, acrobatically, authentic, old Chinese shadow puppets.

Features enchanting live music and snappy raps and witty words written for PuppetCraft by the brilliant, award winning poet Michael Rosen, Children’s Laureate 2007–2009, famed for “Going
on a Bear Hunt”.

For 25 years PuppetCraft has been touring far and wide, becoming one of Britain’s top puppet companies.
