A THEATRE company will be bringing the story of the "world's most famous tightrope walker" to the stage this Easter.

Cousin Jack’s Theatre Company will perform Percy Pengelly and the wibble wobble, a high energy show performed in-the-round, in a circus big-top on the lawn at Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens, near Penzance.

Cousin Jack’s produces high quality family theatre designed to be enjoyed by adults and children of all ages. In fact, the company is very proud that many adults attend their performances without children.

Artistic director Guy Watson said: “Family theatre really should be high quality performances that can be enjoyed by absolutely everyone, we believe that you are never too old or young to lose yourself in new and imaginative worlds.

"Our work is not your average “hello boys and girls...” style offering and is specifically designed for the whole family to enjoy together - we create our own community for just over an hour where old friends sit with new friends to share a heart-warming story.”

Percy Pengelly and the wibble wobble will be performed at the gardens in Gulval over the Easter school holidays, from March 28 to April 12.

The show will feature familiar Cousin Jack’s faces Bec Applebee and Emily Faulkner from their much-loved stage adaptation of The Mousehole Cat, alongside Oliver Longstaff who last performed in Cornwall as heart-throb Joe Miller in Trebah Garden’s sell-out production Operation Neptune.

The musical score will be provided by company composer Richard Trethewey in collaboration with Sian Pilley, trombone player extraordinaire.

Percy’s Big Top opens on March 28, with shows being performed in the morning, afternoon and early evening.

Tremenheere Kitchen will be providing delicious pre-bookable food that can be enjoyed either before or after the show.

There is also discounted garden entry for anyone with a ticket to see Percy, so you can really make a whole day of it.
