A VISUALLY stunning children’s puppet show about friendship and overcoming isolation is at Mandurah Performing Arts Centre this week.

Barking Gecko Theatre Company presents their Helpmann Award-winning Bambert’s Book of Lost Stories at Mandurah Performing Arts Centre.

Bambert’s Book of Lost Stories tells the story of a small and quiet man with a love for writing.

Tucked away in his quiet attic, and surround by books, he never goes outside.

He is never lonely – tucked away inside his stories are his friends – his characters.

But one day he realises that if he has never been out into the world himself, how can his stories be real?

So he sets them out into the world as little balloons in the hope they will find a home.

“With its themes of friendship, empathy and overcoming isolation, I am sure the show will resonate with regional audience,’’ Culture and the Arts Minister David Templeman said.
