Multi-Award-Winning Family Theatre for the Summer Holiday!
Join us in the grounds of Narberth Castle on 4th August for Mumblecrust Theatre’s Multi-Award-Winning show!
Deep in the vaults of an ancient priory a hideous creature awakens. A deadly cockatrice is born! Bold knights
flee in terror… Can a humble nun defeat the beast? Multi-Award-Winning Mumblecrust Theatre present two
muddle-headed storytellers, an obscure British legend, breathtaking puppetry and spine-tingling live music in
this dark and winding fable for monster-lovers young and old.
Mumblecrust Theatre is an award-winning theatre company based in the South West of England. Co-Artistic
Directors Katie Underhay and Anthony Burbridge came together to fill a niche in children’s theatre, where
slightly older children often get left out. From this collaboration, The Tale of the Cockatrice was born.
The pair have collaborated on a number of other projects, including: satirical music video Tawdry Child,
Pinecone Penguin’s King Kong the Musical, puppeteering the Mermaid in Luc Mollinger’s creature feature short
The Mermaid of Mevagissey and co-directing (and creating puppets for) new musical Heartwood.
Katie is an actor, puppeteer and designer. Since graduating from Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama she has toured the UK in children’s theatre, created bespoke puppets and taught puppetry to all ages. Her other work includes touring with Stuff and Nonsense Theatre Company in the Three Little Pigs, performing in Theatre in Education, and costuming puppets for Three Half Pints and Broken Puppet Theatre Company.
Anthony is a performer, composer and director. His work includes appearing as Davey in Civic Player’s
acclaimed rural outreach production Jerusalem, performing as actor/musician in Kickline’s Merlin’s Apprentice,
and composing soundtracks for Perceptive Creation’s short films Murder Plot and Walking Shadow.
