Corporate Entertainment – Puppet Show
Larrikin Puppets provide fantastic corporate entertainment around South East Queensland, and interstate, with an exciting corporate puppet show. We specialise in tailoring the show to incorporate specific references to your staff, funny stories and in-jokes provided in a brief by the person booking the show. Apart from our “family friendly” shows (which we can perform for staff family lunches and Christmas functions), we can also perform a more risqué and cheeky “adults only” corporate puppet show for staff parties and dinners. The puppet show is 30 minutes of songs, games, jokes, skits and comical interaction with the audience – performed in the puppetry style of Sesame Street and The Muppets.
This is followed by a 5 minute demonstration on how the puppets work – which is always hilarious for the audience because we choose volunteers to come up and co-perform a couple of our characters! We then have a 5-10 minute meet-and-greet and photos with the puppets.
In April 2017, Larrikin Puppets had the great honour and privilege to perform a corporate puppet show at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) – for the cast and company of Opera Australia’s “My Fair Lady”, directed by Dame Julie Andrews. Great talent such as Charles Edwards (Downton Abbey), Anna O’Byrne, Reg Livermore, Robyn Nevin, Mark Vincent, Tony Llewellyn-Jones, Deidre Rubenstein, Josh Gates and Don Winsor were among the members of our very special audience. You can read more about this event here.
