Puppet Theatre Wales aims to provide a rich, valuable and unforgettable experience of live theatre through the powerful medium of puppetry. This exciting and unique puppet theatre integrates live action, music and beautiful handcrafted puppets with visually delightful and enchanting tales written for specific age groups.
