Meet Mr. Ridley, a life-size wooden puppet discovering the world all around him for the first time. He has been rooted in the ground for many a year in the form of a tree but now, thanks to a friendly Carpenter, has been given a new breath of life. He is out to meet new people and try news things. Look out for him!
"Mr Ridley was a real hit at our Street theatre festival... The piece is visually entertaining and had the children instantly engaged. What makes this piece special is that it doesn't only entertain the audience, it involves them as well." (Sadie Hurley, JimJam Arts)
An interactive outdoor performance, which invites children and adults alike to interact with the silent Mr. Ridley and The Carpenter. Drawing together elements of clowning, beautiful craftsmanship and a cheeky bit of live music, Mr. Ridley entertains, intrigues and captivates those who meet him!
"The puppet was fantastic, my son could have spent hours watching and playing with Mr. Ridley!" (Audience quote, Word on the Street Festival, Folkestone)
