...theatre at your fingertips

In Shadow Tails, puppeteer Drew Colby paints delightfully with shadows as he tells and sings his stories. Here you will see tales of Anansi, the trickster spider man from Africa, fables of Aesop, folk tales from Norway and Britain, together with tales from the Brothers Grimm and sing-a-long songs. The performance feels like a fabulous bedtime tale told by candle-light as the little ones drift off to sleep – although no-one will be dropping off in this lively and action packed tour-de-force!

Suitable for all ages, Shadow Tails is a performance for parties and schools, and can be tailor-made to suit your theme and timings. It features live music, storytelling and hand shadows.
