The StoryExplorers

The StoryExplorers is a dynamic story-telling performance suitable for all ages.

Meet Nellie Natinski and Nathaniel Nautilus!
Intrepid explorers and guardians of the intriguingly ingenious, much loved StoryGenerator.

Nellie and Nathaniel have travelled round the world collecting story-ideas for their StoryGenerator. Watch as they crank the starter handle and bring their much loved machine to life. From out of its secret compartments - The Cabinet of Curiosities, The Book of Wishes and even The Box of Disasters their story-ideas fuse to create tantalising tales, monstrous myths and flabbergasting fables. And through the bedazzling power of The Transmission Helmet The StoryExplorers will offer these up for your delight. And if the StoryGenerator goes KAPUT! (as sometimes it does) the ever-helpful Mr Mender is on hand to lend a hand and put things right.

The StoryExplorers is a dynamic, vibrant and original family performance created by James Richardson of Angel Heart Theatre and Pip Jones of Skylarker. A fiesta of engaging stories, colourful characters and captivating puppetry that will amaze and ignite the imagination.

They delighted the audience from the young to grandparents. Everyone left the show happy and smiling. Nellie and Nathaniel together with their ingenious StoryGenerator will be a great addition to any festival. ”
