Puppets might traditionally be the domain of children, but a show at the Lichfield Garrick is set to give the format an adult twist.

Sammy J In The Forest of Dreams was a hit when it first reached the nation’s attentions at the Edinburgh Festival.

The show – which features a cast of 14 puppets, toe-tapping music and award-winning puppeteer Heath McIvor – has since gone on to attract a cult following across the country.

A spokesperson for the show said:

“By taking the music of Disney, the drama of The Lord of the Rings and the emotion of Les Miserables. Then blindfold them, beat them, regain their trust, beat them again, and you might end up with something resembling this hit show.”

The show takes place on September 27, but is not suitable for children under 16. Tickets, priced £12 adults and £10 students, are available by calling the Lichfield Garrick box office on 01543 412121 or online at www.lichfieldgarrick.com.
