shortlisted for BEST CHILDRENS SHOW at Brighton Fringe 2014

BEST SHOW at Windsor Fringe 2015


Stories are magical, they change every time they are told and this one is full of surprises!

Our story teller is interrupted by a naughty puppet who wants to be part of the show, the main part- and he’s not sure he likes porridge. What will the bears say?

Mayhem and hilarity ensue and the audience are invited to growl along and join in.

“Highly recommended Show” Fringe Review 2014

“This was a beautiful production, not over-taxing for the children, but fast-moving and managing to engage all the different age-groups who went along. (Including the over-forties!). The little ones, especially, were buzzing with excitement as they left - they'd enjoyed being able to see the puppets close up. Wishworks really know how to engage with an audience - of any age. Unforgettable."  Reviewed by Strat Mastoris for Brighton Fringe 27th May 2014


The story teller opens his book: “Once upon a time there were three bears”

The bears and the cottage appear in intricate shadow puppetry, set to enchanting music.

Then the fox arrives, a naughty fox. He wants to be the main part – Goldilocks, but he doesn’t like porridge, he likes cornflakes for breakfast, or cake.

The storyteller battles manfully to keep to the tale, but the Fox has a chainsaw. With mischievousness, dancing and a lot of mess the fox makes his way to the bedroom. Can you help the storyteller make him go to sleep on the right bed? 

The bears are coming back! The audience must help them find out “who’s been eating my porridge? Who’s been sitting in my chair? Who’s been SLEEPING IN MY BED?” 

“Thoroughly enjoyed your show. You were both a delight. Really good entertainment and we'll done on the puppetry. I would happily recommend it. It's perfect family fare for lots of venues around the country” Adam Bennett, Artistic Director, Little Angel Theatre, 2014
