The Adventures of Madame Carol Sell and Mr Popsy

When Madame Carol Sell first encounters Mr Popsy, she wonders whether anything will ever be the same again. The adventure begins when Mr Popsy, a hot air balloon, becomes the newest attraction in the Georgian gardens where the Carousel resides.

Driven by competition, the two spiral out of control, with acts of revenge, sabotage and the occasional dance-off, only to find themselves no better off than they were at the start. A humorous pantomime exploring how respect, friendship and cooperation can overcome rivalry and jealousy.

Richard and Abby Young founded Tall Tails Theatre Company in February 2019 in order to make theatre accessible for people in Somerset, the south-west, and for national and international festivals. They believe that everyone should be able to enjoy theatre, and make their shows with that in mind. Tall Tails shows kindle a supportive environment for audiences and artists where individual and collective creativity, imagination and participation are encouraged. We have Makaton friendly company status and our shows are Makaton licensed through the Charity. This show is supported by the Arts Council England .
