"Punch and Judy -
The Traditional Action Packed Puppet Show
That Will Have Your Audience
On the Edge Of Their Seats
With Excitement and Laughter!"

 

Punch & Judy NorthwestA good Punch & Judy is full of action, excitement and slapstick fun. I doubt you will ever see children so thoroughly engrossed, laughing at the antics of these puppets as they act out their age-old drama.

 Adults thoroughly enjoy the show as well, but I recommend that you sit where you can watch the children's faces. That is where the real magic is.

A good Punch and Judy show completely involves the audience. There's interaction throughout between the children and the puppets. It is the children who help the other characters as they try to catch and outwit Mr Punch, who really is a bit of a bully!

 If you haven't seen a professional Punch and Judy show, it's hard to imagine just how powerful it is. Some years back, when I still lived in Dublin I was booked to perform at the St John of God's Day Care centre in Islandbridge. They care for people with intellectual disability.  Each summer, they would take the day-care children and teenagers as residents for a week, to give their parents and families a break.

"The best Punch and Judy Show I have ever seen."

On the last night there'd be a party and I'd perform my Magic and Punch & Judy Show. On this particular occasion a fourteen year-old Down's Syndrome girl sat in the third row. She looked extremely glum and glared all during the magic show - didn't even smile once, even though the rest of the audience were having a ball.

During the Punch & Judy show, Judy is questioning Mr Punch as to the whereabouts of the baby. Mr Punch denies knowing where the baby is. Suddenly a voice bellows , "Yes you do you miserable b*****d. I saw you." It was this same girl, now standing on her chair, gesturing wildly at Mr Punch. She was totally emotionally involved and everytime Mr Punch tried to get away with some bullying or misdemeanour, she roared warnings to the other characters or abuse at Mr Punch. I can tell you, it was quite an experience for me.

After the show, when the audience left, the organisers told me she had been there for the full week and she hadn't spoken a sigle word to anyone until the Punch & Judy show. That's the power of a puppet show.
