About Little Mess! 


Little Mess! is a puppetry-based theatrical film for the whole family. Staged in a bespoke 3D tabletop puppet theatre, the show is made specifically for film with unique and original designs. All props and puppets are based on household objects that families interact with everyday, making it particularly accessible for young children and audiences with SEN & additional needs.  


We hope that this theatrical film will inspire audiences to use creative learning tools in order to reimagine their own space and recreate the adventure at home or school, as well as inventing their own stories by creating puppets and worlds with domestic objects such as pillows, socks, blankets, toothbrushes and craft materials.


Little Mess! is adapted from our theatre production, Mess! which was developed with Little Angel Theatre in 2019. 


Little Mess! has been commissioned by Little Angel Theatre and SENsory Atelier at Attenborough Arts Centre, Leicester for their digital programme in May 2021.


You can watch the show on Little Angel Theatre and Attenborough Arts Centre YouTube Channels from 29th May 2021
