An epic tale of trashy proportions!

A puppet show with sustainability at its heart, Escape from Trash Mountain is a poignant look at how good relationships and fervent optimism are the key to saving our planet. Watch in amazement as a large mountain of trash transforms into a cave and becomes the epic playground for our heroes to fight trash bats, navigate treacherous ravines and outwit hideous trash monsters!

Children of all ages will be captivated as two performers operate 17 different puppets and a transforming trash mountain to bring the show to life. Escape From Trash Mountain is fun for the whole family!

The show is accessible to culturally and linguistically diverse audiences - virtually no understanding of the English language is required to enjoy the show to its fullest extent.

Sustainability is packaged in a fun a creative form meaning a trite and didactic kids theatre can be a thing of the past!

The show is ideally accompanied by meaningful and engaging Trash Puppets workshops which add value and tactility to an already enjoyable experience. Kids make their own puppet guided by experience puppet-making experts.
