JOURNEY OF TURTLE

Presented by Lempen Puppet Theatre
Fri 4 – Sun 6 Aug
Location: Theatre

Fri – Sun: 11am, 2pm

Turtles are old, millions of years old, as old as dinosaurs, as old as some hills.
Go to Turtle Hill and experience an imaginative journey through the evolution
and learning of this most fascinating and ancient creature.

In the beginning turtle was shiny and fast,
always impatient, always in a hurry,
but then one day he had a terrible accident…

A beautiful story about following your dream, told with shadows, table-top puppets and
traditional storytelling.

Being inspired by the magical sound and shape of the “Hang”  instrument from Bern (Switzerland), built by Panart, Lempen  Puppet Theatre have researched traditional Turtle stories from  around the world and created ‘Journey of Turtle’, a delightful
production to inspire everyone over the age of 5.

Working with September Theatre of Germany on story-work and direction, they have produced an atmospheric and imaginative story, full of shadows, light and music, about following your dream.


Age Guidance
Journey of Turtle is aimed at ages 5-11. The company say: ‘Some complex and thought-provoking ideas are woven into our stories for the adults and older children, but the basic story line can be understood by children from about 5 years of age. Younger children may become restless.’
