It’s the collaboration that is five years in the making – Spare Parts Puppet Theatre and the Western Australian Museum have formed a new project partnership to present the world premiere of the “adventure performance”, Tom Vickers and the Extraordinary Adventure of his Missing Sock at the WA Shipwrecks Museum in Fremantle, the Museum of Geraldton, and the Museum of the Great Southern in Albany in 2018.
This beautiful ‘choose your own adventure’ work takes you on a journey that fuses puppetry and museum displays – the museum tells stories using objects, and Tom Vickers… happily continues that tradition with 19 installations for children and adults alike to interact with.
Hear the story of the real life Tom Vickers as you navigate your way through his life and history – highlighting the stories and sacrifices made during World War One, the ANZAC Spirit, and how these events had a lasting impact on this corner of the world.
This isn’t the first collaboration with the Western Australian Museum, but it is the first time something of this scale has been undertaken by either party. So head on down to the Shipwreck Museum and discover a ‘yarn’ worth unraveling with Tom Vickers and the Extraordinary Adventure of his Missing Sock!
