Percy Pengelly and The Wibble Wobble

By author Jenny Steele Scolding

Cousin Jacks Theatre were preparing to launch their new show ‘Percy Pengelly and The Wibble Wobble’ based on Jenny’s children’s book just as Covid hit. We were just about to start to start rehearsals having already done several days research and development.

I was to play a whole variety of characters. Instead we timed ourselves reading the book in character at home. Scraping together bits of costume and trying to find a space , somewhere quiet that wasn’t cluttered with general household detritus

Cousin Jack’s then edited the footage and created some magic using animation and the show was one of the very early online productions available for families to enjoy during Lock Down.
