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!

The Sea Show is the creation of Craig Johnson, an actor, musician and puppeteer, and long-standing member of Cornwall’s renowned Kneehigh Theatre.

Age guidance: 5+ 

Customer notice: This is an outdoor performance. Please dress appropriately. Also, no seating will be provided and customers are encouraged to bring their own picnic blankets and cushions. Customers are allowed to bring camping chairs but will be seated at the back of the audience area. However, if the British weather prevails then there will be a wet weather provision and the performance will be held indoors! Customers will also need to bring their own seating for indoor performances. 


“Craig is a consummate actor of rare skills. Totally at ease with his audience, adult and child alike, he combines an innate understanding and joy in storytelling with fantastic comic and musical skill.” Mike Shepherd, Founder and Artistic Director, Kneehigh Theatre

"Craig's success lies in the fact that he talks to, rather than at, his young audience, and he does it all with a huge sense of joy and fun that is as inspiring as it is infectious…. An engaging entertainer to be treasured.” Frank Ruhrmund, ‘The Cornishman’
