The Twits

Winter school holiday fun with storytelling, puppets and physical theatre

Join us for this new stage adaption of the Roald Dahl classic tale, The Twits. A comedy of rebellion and justice that is a super high energy combination of storytelling, puppetry and physical theatre from Spare Parts Puppet Theatre, Australia’s flagship puppetry company.

Mr and Mrs Twit, the most horrible people ever to live on the stage of the earth! Being the delightful humans they are, Mr and Mrs Twit spend their days playing dirty tricks on each other. Mrs Twit puts worms in Mr Twit‘s spaghetti – yuck! Mr Twit convinces Mrs Twit that she has the dreaded shrinks – how mean!

Meanwhile, Muggle-Wump, a poor little monkey is held captive by the Twits. Obsessed with putting on The Great Upside-Down Monkey Circus, the Twits relentlessly train Muggle- Wump to perform death defying stunts, punishing the little monkey as they see fit. Poor little Muggle-Wump.

But! Fate changes with the arrival of Roly-Poly, a glorious bird full of grace and pomposity. Together a plot is devised to secure Muggle-Wump’s freedom and punish the Twits forever.

Playfulness and tricks are more successful than following the rules in this classic Roald Dahl story, making it fantastically well suited to the grotesque world of puppet theatre.
