About the show

“Our tale tells of a little girl and Wilma was her name, who loved to laugh and run and play, more wild and free than tame!”

Wild Wilma tells the story of a young girl who is sold to the circus because of her extraordinary nature. However, Wilma struggles to fit in and meet the strict expectations of the circus mistress. On a quest to find her identity, Wilma finds the courage and bravery to be wild and free through the friendship of others.

A wonderfully wild family show written by children’s author, Rachel Lyon (I Wish I’d Been Born A Unicorn for CBeebies) told through physical storytelling, puppetry and an original soundtrack.

Be brave. Be different. Be wild!


The piece itself was stunning, our 80-strong audience of children and parents were fully engaged from beginning to end. Highly accomplished physical theatre and puppetry, beautiful puppets and set and a wonderful script combining brilliantly.” – Adam Hemming, Artistic Director at the Space

Hilarious, stunning puppetry and truly magical! A company to watch out for!” – David Glass

Creating a playful reality.” – Tangled Feet

A bundle of artists who know how to making something from nothing.” – Les Enfant Terribles
