  Rattlebox Theatre - Puppetry and Storytelling

"Your performances were superb and the props were especially well made and convincing! The shows went down really well with both children and adults alike."

Rattlebox Theatre is run by myself - Dave Oliver.  Whilst I often work as a one-man show, I sometimes perform with a collection of talented storytellers, musicians and artists on larger projects.
I graduated from Bretton Hall College with a BA Hons in Dramatic Arts and Dramatic Presentation.  Since then, combining my love and knowledge of performance, history, folklore, prop making and puppetry, I have developed a lively performance style and detailed, often fantastical look to my work - whether it be walkabout character, a puppet creation or costumed storytelling.
