With miniature puppet shows inside a big, rolling mule puppet, the timeless theme of migration is packaged up in Thingumajig’s latest street act, KIT AND CABOODLE.

A pack mule with its beautiful burden of tales is joined by two well-travelled companions. Bags and cases open to reveal stories and songs of remarkable journeys from the staggering sojourn of a butterfly to people past and present who set out in search of a better life.

Kit and Caboodle can be a static show or a walkabout act.

The static show can be performed twice over the course of the day and lasts 30-minutes per show with a strolling performance into and out of the performing area which can help gather a crowd for the show.  

The walkabout version is three 40-minute sets which include one or two 5-minute stop(s) to perform a short show.

Note: the walkabout version does not include all the puppet shows.

Kit and Caboodle Show is wonderful, charming and heartwarming, they had our young audience and their families entranced from start to finish.
