About the Walkabout
Captain Bullock rides Polly, his temperamental giant parrot puppet liable to cause mayhem anywhere within a 2 metre radius, on a quest for treasure, birdseed and romance.
Meranda, the gorgeous Mermaid, is a temptress in all her fishy glory. She rides a beautiful seahorse puppet drawn chariot, spreading beauty tips and amorous looks on her continued quest to find and catch a handsome and largely unsuspecting sailor in her large shrimping net. Will the Captain fall for her ravishing beauty and scaly seductiveness?
What to expect
This act features larger than life, visually stunning costumes and infectiously funny characters. The Captain (walking on stilts whilst riding the parrot puppet) and the Mermaid (riding on the chariot pulled by the seahorse puppets) move through the crowds stopping for selfies and introducing their fantastical creatures. Banter abounds as the notorious Polly wends her raucous way through the audience, creating laughter and havoc in her friendly parroty fashion. The chariot plays music and releases clouds of bubbles as they interact with the crowd in a playful and entertaining manner.
