The Magic of Mowzer


Following requests from schools across Cornwall the Dream Team are proud to present

– Mowzer’s Workshop –

A fun and physical puppet theatre workshop for children aged 5 to 11 led by cast members from the sell out Cornish production of The Mousehole Cat.

Bec Applebee (Kneehigh, WildWorks), our Mowzer puppeteer, and Bryher Flanders (National Youth Theatre, Story Republic), Mousehole’s very own fisherwoman and narrator, will lead primary school children through a journey of Cornish traditions, celtic song and imaginative puppetry.

During this two and a half hour workshop children will get the chance to create their own puppet and perform alongside the theatre company’s actors and Mowzer puppet in their own unique scene based around the story of Tom Bawcock and the classic Cornish children’s book, The Mousehole Cat.
