Spare Parts Puppet Theatre

Spare Parts Puppet Theatre is Australia's flagship puppetry company dedicated to the development and creation of the art form. Through puppetry we share stories that celebrate what it is to be human; connecting audiences across generations.

Over the course of our 35 year history we have entertained and enriched the lives of hundreds of thousands of audience members both in Australia and abroad.

Create, Make, Manipulate!

Our School of Puppetry program offers unique opportunities for young people to learn, connect and develop their puppetry skills.

We offer puppet making workshops each school holidays for children ages 4 - 12, engage community members through workshops held at libraries and local community events, and we run workshops with school students as incursions and excursions.

Your tickets will be available to collect from the box office, which opens one hour prior to the performance start time. The theatre doors will open 30 minutes before the performance starts and all seating is unreserved. You're welcome to explore the foyer and take part in the activities or take a seat inside the theatre and get comfortable

Pre and post show activities

Amongst all the puppets in the foyer, we have an activity station where you can explore puppetry and get creative before or after the show.


After each performance we invite you to stay back for 5-10 minutes with the performers to ask any burning questions you may have!
