FREMANTLE’S iconic Spare Parts Puppet Theatre is sending its finest marionettes to take over Forrest Place.

The puppets are having their big day out this April 12, and Spare Parts’ artistic director Philip Mitchell says Puppets in the City is an exciting ‘choose-your-own-adventure’ that has something for everyone: “You can go on a puppet treasure hunt, make your own puppet, or marvel at, or be one of, the special puppeteers that brings our giant puppet Leor to life.”

The majestic Leor stands 4.5m tall and transforms his sparkly body into a starry galaxy at night. Puppets in the City was state government funded as part of the $12 million CBD post-Covid revitalisation program.
