Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - HOT PROPERTY -

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.
