Toadstool Tales: Truffle’s in Trouble

From 27 June 2021

We are offering this online show for free, but if you’re able to make a donation it would be much appreciated.

The safe comfort of Mossy Glade in the deep forest is disrupted as a band of merry mushroom friends have one of their own snatched away! Penny and Shaggy embark on an adventure into the great unknown to rescue Truffle, encountering many exciting characters, environments and obstacles along the way. Will they be able to use their wits to save the day and return home to Mossy Glade?

Puppetry intern, Jessica Shead, is excited to present her Puppet Show debut with Little Angel Theatre using all the training, experience and skills she has gained over the past 6 months.

This film will be released for free on the Little Angel Theatre YouTube channel and will be available indefinitely.

Once you’ve watched the show, have a go at making a fungi friend rod puppet of your own! Find the instructions here.
