Important information about this event

Following the Prime Minister’s confirmation that social distancing will no longer apply to theatre performances, we have increased the number of tickets available for this performance.  We will continue to follow UK Theatre's recommendations for best practice to ensure the safety of our audiences at this time under the See-it-Safely kitemark.  We will continue to provide hand sanitiser stations and encourage visitors to wear face masks when visiting indoor spaces such as the toilets.  We will monitor our protocols in accordance with future government advice.

The Sea Show is a quirky and hilarious mix of puppet show, natural history and comedy cabaret.

Meet crazy characters like Morwenna the ‘beautiful’ mermaid, Ruan the reformed seagull and salty seadog Captain Pemburthy, as well as a cast of mischievous sea-squirts, anemones, limpets, crabs and pilchards.

Come and celebrate the sea with tall tales, silly slapstick, fantastic facts, live music and songs - unmissable fun for children and adults of all ages!

The Sea Show is the creation of Craig Johnson, an actor, musician and puppeteer, and long-standing member of Cornwall’s renowned Kneehigh Theatre.

For children aged 5+ and their families.

“Johnson's natural rapport and good humoured fun with the young people make this an absolute celebration of all that is good about theatre for children.”  Petra Schofield, Whatsonstage.com

"Craig's success lies in the fact that he talks to, rather than at, his young audience, and he does it all with a huge sense of joy and fun that is as inspiring as it is infectious…. An engaging entertainer to be treasured.”  Frank Ruhrmund, ‘The Cornishman’

 “Craig Johnson is totally at ease with his audience, adult and child alike, and combines an innate understanding and joy in storytelling with fantastic comic and musical skill.”  Mike Shepherd, Founder and Artistic Director, Kneehigh Theatre
