Award winning company bring puppet show & monstrous melodies to The Core

A hilariously offbeat, jazzy tale for children aged 4 and above, There’s A Monster In My Piano comes to The Core at Corby Cube on Saturday 29 June.

What do you do when you hear a strange munching noise inside a piano? Call the Piano Doctor of course. He might be able to help with his bag full of ears and his collection of weird and wonderful tools. But when he looks inside – the musical notes are packing their bags and running away. What are they scared of and who is hammering at the keys?

This delightful show by the award-winning Garlic Theatre uses puppets, clowning and animation to bring to life the notes, like Madame Minim and Major Crotchet, who live inside the piano, and of course the highly-strung monster of the title. “It’s a very playful show about the inner world of this piano”, says Garlic co-founder and performer Iklooshar Malara. “We are unlocking the audience’s imagination with sound effects so they can imagine things too.”

Garlic Theatre have performed to young audiences in theatres, festivals, art centres and schools throughout the United Kingdom and have toured to 15 countries, winning 5 awards in international puppet festivals. They aim to challenge, entertain and stimulate people of all ages by encouraging imaginative play and developing awareness of the power of puppet animation.

There’s A Monster In My Piano at The Core at Corby Cube on Saturday 29 June, (11am and 2pm). Tickets, priced at a very reasonable £5.50!
