Internationally-Acclaimed Puppet Show at the PETA Theater Center

A creative family bonding experience comes to the PETA Theater Center all the way from Australia!
For its annual family event, the PETA Theater Center transforms into a children’s play house. It is the perfect place to take your kids for a fun, extraordinary and memorable bonding experience. This year is extra special because PETA partners with Bunk Puppets to bring to Manila the internationally awarded shadow puppetry performance Sticks, Stones, Broken Bones all the way from Melbourne, Australia!
Sneaky chickens, flying ninjas, brain surgery and an unforgettable horse race! Sticks, Stones, Broken Bones takes the audience into a surreal world of puppets and adventure.
Using household objects and bits of rubbish, Bunk Puppets transforms simple objects into hilarious silhouette stories. In each scene, the puppetry is performed in front of the shadow screen, so that the audience gets a close look at the visual trickery. Old toys, brooms, boxes and discarded clothing are deftly stitched together to create shadow puppet stories and characters.
Delighting audiences in dozens of countries, Sticks, Stones, Broken Bones is a hilarious fusion of shadow puppetry and physical theatre. It’s a visual feast for the imagination! Come, experience one man's playful vision of wonder and nonsense. Sticks, Stones, Broken Bones is a 50-minutenon-verbal puppet comedy show for all ages. Some bits are a wee bit scary for under 6 years old, so we highly recommend that they are accompanied by their parents.
Sticks, Stones, Broken Bones comes to the Philippines this May! Shows are scheduled at May 3 (2pm), 4 (2pm), 5 (2pm), 6 (1:30pm, 4pm) and 7 (1:30pm, 4pm). To complete this rare experience, there will also be a series of puppetry workshops for kids and adults alike facilitated by the founders of Bunk Puppets on May 4 and 5, 6pm (Advanced Puppetry Workshop for Adults) and May 6 and 7, 10am, (Parent-Child Puppetry Workshop).
Tickets and workshop slots may be booked through Ticketworld or by texting (0917) 807 3069. Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity to bond with your little ones over a show that will surely amaze audience of any age!
