THE PRAM SHOW The perfect Birthday Party entertainment.
Dennis Murphy is the driven force behind Sydney’s international award-winning puppet company, MURPHYS PUPPETS.
With a stable of weird characters, eleven current productions and countless puppet acts, Dennis’s alter egos have earned him wide acclaim in Australia and the “Ural Citation for Excellence” in Russia.
He is probably best known for THE PRAM SHOW and for his adaptation of Commedia del’Arte puppetry for modern Australian audiences.
Dennis had the unique distinction of taking his Italian-style Puppetry back to Italy, performing at TEATRI DEL MONDO, Europe’s largest International Children’s Theatre Festival.
The drama critic of the Italian national newspaper, L’Unita, called Dennis “one of the world’s finest glove-puppeteers.”
“It was always a great day for us when you performed at the Gallery.”

“There is no doubting this puppeteer’s experience and skill. The wit, the timing, the handling, and the immediacy of his responses to the audience reflect a machinery well-honed.” – The Australian Puppeteer Magazine
“Thank you for the fantastic puppet show you put on for our Kindy boys. The Pram Show was hilarious and the boys were still talking about it a week later. The teachers also thought it was very funny and really entertaining. . . . Thank you for treating us to such a fun time.”
