Why should kids have all the fun? If you’re looking for unique party ideas for grown ups, Larrikin Puppets also perform fun puppet shows for the child at heart!
Brett Hansen and his troupe of puppet characters are witty and clever enough to provide top quality, cringe free puppet entertainment and fun for adults in and around Brisbane, the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast. If you’re a fan of Avenue Q, Crank Yankers or The Muppets, there’s no reason why adults can’t enjoy a puppet show to make their special event memorable! Whether it’s for a 21st, a 30th, 50th, an engagement party, buck’s night or simply a barbecue, below are the details:
The initial 50% deposit to lock in the booking is $125.
And then the remaining $125 can be paid in cash on the day of the party, or via direct deposit. Details of Payment Methods here.
Suitable for everyone, but with humour and references that might appeal more to those over 18. 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 an additional meet-and-greet lasting up to 15 minutes, where people have an opportunity to have their photo (or selfie) taken with Troggg, our wise cracking blue monster star. Some people might opt for a Q&A session about the puppets and how they work.
Past adult parties we’ve performed at included a 21st birthday masquerade ball, and a 60th birthday lunch. Judging by the laughter, applause and feedback we get from grown ups at kids’ parties and public events, it seems pretty clear that a lot of adults wish it was socially acceptable to book a puppet show for their grown up event! With Larrikin Puppets, there’s no reason why they can’t.
