‘Combining acting, animation and puppetry, these boys are clever and funny. One scene had me laughing so much that my stomach started to ache.’
'The troupe's name pretty much says it all: there are silly songs, silly dances, silly voices, silly costumes and silly jokes, all delivered with great comedy timing and warmth. Multi-skilled, they take their audience on a journey into the darker regions of human experience, prompting gasps, laughter and sheer delight.'
SIMON PARKER, EDITOR, WESTERN MORNING NEWS.
‘Silly Boys are gloriously silly, beautifully inventive, original, engaging and daft.’
ANTHONY ROBERTS, DIRECTOR, COLCHESTER ARTS CENTRE.
‘The audience were completely engaged from the beginning, and the company use music, humour, puppetry and illusion to present one surprise after another.’
JO BURGESS, DIRECTOR, FOOLS PARADISE.
‘The likes of Kneehigh and Miracle can breathe a sigh of relief, the future of Cornish-bred theatre is in safe hands. Long may these boys be silly.’
LEE TREWHELA, THE WEST BRITON.
