a bit about us...

Moon On A Stick is an emerging puppetry company, founded in late 2012 by, Shelly Atton, Alice Sillett and Madelaine Ryan. The company is Norfolk based with links to Milton Keynes, London and the South West.


We are Actors and graduates from The Academy of Live and Recorded Arts, post graduate programme. With additional skills, training and experience in many other areas including theatre design, puppet making, circus skills, directing and workshop leading.


With a shared love of puppetry and visual theatre, Moon On A Stick aims to create inspiring, immersive and visually engaging theatre using storytelling and puppetry. Not wanting to box ourselves in to ages and demographics, we create theatre which engages children and adults and more often than not both.


The company often take lost and forgotten tales prodominently from the British Isles (occasionally beyond if the mood takes us!) rediscovering and reimagining them for a new audience. Our aim is to take high quality, imaginitive, visual theatre to the regions, making it accessible in areas where high quality theatre is less common. We hope to share the stories of our past and allow them to educate and influence us for the future.


We are always looking for new ways to make our theatre accessible and are working hard to develop work for a wider audience. We are currently looking to develop 'relaxed performances' of each of our main shows to make our productions accesible and immersive for everyone.
