Puppets fascinate not only the kids but also the kids-at-heart, and if you are looking for something new and exciting to do with the kids this summer then read on to know more about PETA’s Sticks, Stones, Broken Bones puppetry performance!

For its annual family event, the PETA Theater Center transforms into a children’s play house. It is the perfect place to take your kids for a fun, extraordinary and memorable bonding experience. This year is extra special because PETA partners with Bunk Puppets to bring to Manila the internationally awarded shadow puppetry performance Sticks, Stones, Broken Bones all the way from Melbourne, Australia!

A creative family bonding experience comes to the PETA Theater Center all the way from Australia!

Sneaky chickens, flying ninjas, brain surgery and an unforgettable horse race! Sticks, Stones, Broken Bones takes the audience into a surreal world of puppets and adventure.

Using household objects and bits of rubbish, Bunk Puppets transforms simple objects into hilarious silhouette stories. In each scene, the puppetry is performed in front of the shadow screen, so that the audience gets a close look at the visual trickery. Old toys, brooms, boxes and discarded clothing are deftly stitched together to create shadow puppet stories and characters.

Delighting audiences in dozens of countries, Sticks, Stones, Broken Bones is a hilarious fusion of shadow puppetry and physical theatre. It’s a visual feast for the imagination! Come, experience one man’s playful vision of wonder and nonsense. Sticks, Stones, Broken Bones is a 50-minute non-verbal puppet comedy show for all ages. Some bits are a wee bit scary for under 6 years old, so we highly recommend that they are accompanied by their parents.
