A co-production between Larrikin Puppets and Edge Improv, Thank Troggg You’re Here: A Puppet Impro Spectacular! is a comedy variety show that combines short-form improvised theatre scenes (think Whose Line Is It Anyway?) with puppetry in the TV style of Jim Henson (The Muppets, Sesame Street).

Cast of Thank Troggg You're Here

Puppets are projected onto a movie screen, with puppeteers performing live on stage below them.

Performers improvise outside of their own body, and into the body of a puppet, playing within the space framed by a video camera’s lens. The audience can watch the puppets projected onto the screen, as well as the performers live on stage below them.

Thank Troggg You're Here: A Puppet Impro Spectacular!Thank Troggg enjoyed a successful season in May 2014 at Mowbraytown Hall (East Brisbane), as part of the Anywhere Theatre Festival, and has since been performed at New Globe Theatre (Fortitude Valley).

This is a full cast production with a lot of challenging technical wizardry behind it. We only perform this show in theatres, cinemas or halls, preferably with seating. An inbuilt movie screen is always a bonus too. A booking of this production would need to cover the cost of nine puppeteers, one musician, a van load of film and TV camera and projection equipment, lighting gear, piano keyboard gear, and puppets.
