Mike Petersen’s Good Old Fashioned Punch & Judy Show

If you are a fan of Fraggle Rock, Labyrinth, or the award­winning CBC series The Mighty Jungle you have already seen the puppet stylings of Mike Petersen. But his claim to puppeteer fame extends far beyond his film and television credits. Mike has traveled the world as a puppeteer working with such companies as Mermaid Theatre, Neptune Theatre, Festival Antigonish, Kaleidoscope Theatre, the Edinburgh Puppet Company, Poland’s Teatr Arlekin, and Theatre Beyond Words.
They’re all here – the loving wife, the teetering toddler, the crusty cop, the voracious crocodile, and of course, the mischievous Mr. Punch in all his trouble-making glory! Come celebrate one of the oldest puppet traditions on Earth, with Mike Petersen’s Good Old Fashioned Punch & Judy Show!
