Jacolly Puppet Theatre is a professional touring company that has entertained and educated mostly younger audiences across the UK and abroad for over 30 years. Their current shows include Elf Tales about bullying issues for Key Stages. 1 & 2; Real Bugs (KS 2) that uses 40 times life size insects to help children learn about entomology; and Dogworthy’s Summer Magic (KS 1) that acts as an entertaining teaching aid set on a magical seashore. Teaching shows are supported with follow-up material. “Real Bugs was a magnet from the first beetle to the last ant. Even the most complex of concepts was reduced to a fun-filled package that kept the audience enthralled, entertained and, of course, educated.” Kelvin Boot, Plymouth Marine Aquarium
Jac Illett and Holly Griffin also teach puppet-making and performing techniques for teachers and students.
