Mousetale Puppets
  Oscar's Amazing Space Adventure  

“From the moment the children entered the hall they were transported to a different world... The best puppet show I've seen.”

Julia Harkness, Venue Manager, FTH Falkirk

  Oscar and Incy in the castle   My performances take place in the dark, using ultraviolet light with glowing fluorescent rod puppets made from foam and rubber latex. I write my own stories and create my own puppets and scenery as well as composing songs specially for each show. I perform the show solo, to a digital stereo soundtrack which is pre-recorded in my own studio.  

All my shows are fast-moving and upbeat. Story and dialogue are interspersed with musical interludes and dance sequences, holding the children’s attention from beginning to end. The use of music and special effects makes the performance exciting and absorbing while the humour appeals to both children and adults.

After the show there is always an opportunity for the audience to meet some of the puppets.


The performance itself lasts 35-45 minutes; I suggest allowing 1 hour altogether, including meeting the puppets afterwards.

If time allows, I will gladly answer questions from school audiences about the writing and making of the show. This can be widened to include enterprise-related questions about running the puppet theatre as a business.


“Mousetale Puppets has been delighting our audiences for the past six years with its stylish, colourful productions of high quality, full of fun and catchy original music. This company’s work is an important part of Scotland’s burgeoning puppet theatre scene.”

Simon Hart, Director,
Puppet Animation Scotland

“Oscar the Mouse has been a consistent delight to our Saturday audiences since 2002. So much so, that families now return on a regular basis to follow the ongoing adventures of Oscar. He has become a cult attraction at SMPC.”
