Oldest running puppet theatre to make debut
PROFESSOR Wallace’s Puppet Theatre is making its Mossman Show debut this year and promises timeless entertainment for the family.
The puppet theatre is one of the oldest continuous performing acts in Australia with its origins going back over 100 years.
The variety show combines traditional wooden hand puppets, modern muppets and marionettes and all performances include audience interaction, promising “there’s no time to be bored”.
Puppeteer Garry Walsh said he was excited to be bringing a puppet show to Mossman.
“Over the years people have forgotten how amazing it can be, so I really want to show that the puppet performance is still alive,” he said.
Mr Walsh’s oldest puppets Punch and Judy are around 100 years old and he is keen to perform a classic show for the crowds.
