A joyous jumble of live music, puppetry and performance


Based upon a series of twisted tales by Oliver Lansley, this fantastic spectacle blends puppetry, live music and story-telling into a highly sensory theatrical feast suitable for big kids and small grown-ups!


Meet Tumb, the boy who eats his mum, Thingummyboy, with a face even his mother forgets, Little Linena, the material girl and of course little Tilly and her terrible tail. Roald Dahl meets Tim Burton in this hugely theatrical, funny, sad, silly, junk-filled, puppetry packed, dark, delicious, magical piece of performance.

Tickets are $10 at the door and Pro-Art season ticket holders are free to attend. Advance tickets may be purchased at (service fee applies). UVA Wise Faculty, Staff, and Students are also free to attend.
