'Focus of Nursery Children was wonderful to observe - they were engrossed and loved the physicality of the actor and the props. One child with special needs was signing and mimicking the actor all the way through - a BIG step in her development! When can he come back was the first question asked by the nursery nurse.'
TumTumTinker is a charming show designed for kindergarten and young audiences that overflows with storytelling, mime, puppets and comedy.
TumTumTinker is a shoemaker who makes special shoes. He's the one who made Cinderella’s slippers and Puss in the Boots, boots. Today he's telling the story of a sailing wooden clog he made for RumRum, a fisherman who sails the ocean searching for the world's greatest pearl.
Then there's the football boots he made for PlumPlum. PlumPlum assumes they're magical so she stops practising. Naturally it all goes wrong until PlumPlum discovers the best magic is one we can all do - practise and try your best.
'Mark Penzak is a marvelous storyteller with a rich repertoire of props that bring the stories to life and fire the children's imaginations.'
‘a beautifully assembled package of his own persuasive storytelling skills.’ The Herald - Edinburgh Fringe
Engaging for children - they loved the experience all the props as a part of the story telling. The themes of the stories were great - lots of issues to discuss after. Great to talk to actor after and ask questions. Many children were new to this kind of experience. Year 2 Teacher
