willie-3

Willie is an outrageous but loveable rogue, whose interests include food, motorbikes and rock’n’roll. He plans to eat Granny and Red Riding Hood but fails miserably because of his unreliable motorbike. Luckily Granny is a good mechanic. Unluckily she is not a good driver…how will it end?

With puppets hand-operated from within a rickety seaside style puppet booth, which heaves around alarmingly throughout the performance issuing bubbles, smoke, occasional jets of water and a variety of props, this show is extremely fast- moving, more than a little anarchic, and invariably leaves audiences with smiles on their faces!

Over a 35 year career as a puppeteer Mike Hares has written, performed and directed many shows all over the UK and Europe. Willie the Wicked Wolf is the show that has accompanied Mike’s entire career and continues to delight audiences of all ages. Mike has presented this production at more than fifteen different Puppet Animation Festivals and each year this perennial favourite continues to delight and entertain new Scottish audiences.

 

A real winner with the children- and the ultimate accolade – a thoroughly enjoyable show for adults too.
