What We Do

The Moon and Sixpence Puppet Theatre is a marionette (string puppet) theatre. This kind of puppetry is more complex than glove or rod puppets and, because the puppeteers operate behind and above the marionettes, it requires a much bigger fit-up (staging).

Unusually for marionette theatres, Moon and Sixpence productions are performed live – allowing for some personalisation and improvisation within the performances.

Because of the complexity of marionette productions, they tend not to tour. The Moon and Sixpence Puppet Theatre was originally devised as a travelling company and continues that tradition today. If you have an audience, we have a show!

There are typically three kinds of audience for whom the Moon and Sixpence performs: schools, festivals and corporate (or community) organisations.
