“Audiences were delighted as dusk fell and the giant puppet started to twinkle and the energy on the festival site was palpable. Presenting String Symphony has been a highlight for the Joondalup Festival in 2017…” Jennifer Nebel, Principal Arts Officer, City of Joondalup

From roving entertainment that will interact with your crowds, to puppet making workshops for families to participate in together, we have something to suit your next big event. We are also able to work with schools or community groups within your catchment to create works of scale for your event.

Spare Parts Puppet Theatre has entertained crowds at events such as PlayGroup WA’s Annual Fun Day, The Old Perth Road Markets, The Angelo Street Festival, Joondalup Festival, Araluen’s Chilli Festival, Perth College Creative Arts Day and the Maylands Street Festival. We have also made appearances at the Joondalup Festival, the 2017 Rotary Conference, Syren Street Festival in Rockingham and York Festival.

2018 was a big year for us and we showcased our large scale work String Symphony at APAM.  Bleach* Festival, Festival 2018  as part of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, Wind on Water Festival in Geraldton, Stretch Arts Festival Mandurah and Flipside at Esplanade, Theatres on the Bay in Singapore.

String Symphony also took a trip to the Sunshine Coast where it was featured as part of the fantastic Horizon Festival program. The festival ran from 24 August to 2 September 2018 and festival goers got a chance to bring our giant illuminated puppet to life! String Symphony took one final international trip before the end of an exciting 2018, when it travelled to Malaysia in December to perform at Desaru Coast Resort. 

During 2019 we presented our new work Galileo and Celeste at the Joondalup Festival and String Symphony also made debuts at The York Festival, Glow Winter Arts Festival and WA Day Festival!
