The Terrapin Puppet Theatre of Australia is bringing their adventurous play, “Boats” to the Segerstrom Center for the Arts Samueli Theater on April 6th and 7th. The family performance will captivate the audience with their talented use of puppetry.

Boats is the story about a man named Jof, as told by his friend Nic. These two life-long friends and mariners, who met through bizarre circumstances involving a chicken, a deserted island and a sombrero, escape their past and embrace the unknown future with a great sense of adventure.

The magic of storytelling unfolds right in front of the audience as scenes are depicted featuring acrobatics and spectacular sound effects created on stage. The characters of Jof and Nic transform the world by using everyday objects that would be found on a boat’s galley. From a circus made from a jacket to a storm made in a teacup, such imaginative use of space and puppetry has garnered Terrapin with a global following.
