Kids in Adelaide Review ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Jeff Achtem of Bunk Puppets has done it again! His clown adventures and puppet mastery had our family of five laughing, cheering and clapping along, as he creates interactive theatre magic. An imaginative and comedic puppet show, Bunktopia shines for the young at heart.
Jeff manages to create a myriad of worlds and stories with his puppet creations, from giant trolls to silly snails, crazy scientists and so much more! If you love slapstick comedy of the ‘Mr Bean’ variety, you will love Bunktopia. For something a little different to your typical circus and magic shows, this hilariously creative show is one not to be missed on your Fringe schedule.
For that truly authentic Fringe feel, the show is held in the Garden of Unearthly Delights! We are off to bunnings to buy some cardboard and gloves to make to some crazy shadow puppets!
Recommended Ages 4-99
