An epic tale of trashy proportions!
A puppet show with sustainability at its heart, Escape from Trash Mountain is a poignant look at how good relationships and fervent optimism are the key to saving our planet.
Watch in amazement as a large mountain of trash transforms into a cave and becomes the epic playground for our heroes to fight trash bats, navigate treacherous ravines and outwit hideous trash monsters!
The whole family will be captivated as two performers operate 17 different puppets and a transforming trash mountain to bring the show to life.
