The Sea Show

"Fascinating, informative and very funny - the children were totally spellbound!"

Chris Mottram, Head Teacher Ludgvan School

"Funny, funny, funny, thank you - what a lovely show!"

Audience feedback, Cardiff Harbour Festival​

The Sea Show is a quirky and hilarious mix of puppet show, natural history and comedy cabaret.


Meet crazy characters like Morwenna the ‘beautiful’ mermaid, Ruan the reformed seagull and salty seadog Captain Pemburthy, as well as a cast of mischievous sea-squirts, anemones, limpets, crabs and pilchards.


Come and celebrate the sea with tall tales, silly slapstick, fantastic facts, live music and songs - unmissable fun for children and adults of all ages!

I have been performing The Sea Show for several years, and it has become a firm favourite with children and adults of all ages, who love the blend of ingenious puppetry, informal performance style and gently subversive sense of humour!


For children aged 4+ and their families.

The Sea Show is 50 minutes long. It requires a space of 3x3m, plus access to a standard power socket. Full technical specifications available on request.




"A mix of great traditional kids' entertainment with a smidge of adult humour thrown in for free!"

"The best puppet show for schools that I have ever seen!"

Geoff Smith, Head Teacher Kehelland School

"Johnson's natural rapport and good humoured fun with the young people make this an absolute celebration of all that is good about theatre for children."
