Thrilling music performed live on two pianos

If you could be an animal, which one would you be? Would you be a bird flying free in the sky, a proud prowling lion, or a cheeky little mouse?

This summer, Spare Parts Puppet Theatre invites you and your family to join them for a musical journey to meet the people of Perth - and the animals that represent us!

Carnival of the Animals is a vibrant family-friendly spectacular that sees Camille Saint-SaŽns' humorous suite The Carnival of the Animals (Le carnaval des animaux) come to life on stage!

Featuring the words of beloved Australian playwright Nick Enright, a cast of hilarious puppets, time-lapse footage and two extraordinary pianists live on stage - The Carnival of the Animals is unlike anything you've ever seen before!

Carnival of the Animals is set on one beautiful day in Perth and as Saint-SaŽns' marvellous music bursts out of the theatre, you'll be transported from Fremantle to the Hills, the Swan River to the city.

The crowd is clappin', the flags are flappin', the carnival is about to happen!

Carnival of the Animals is sure to delight children and adults alike! Secure your tickets today at
