About the company

Cat & Mouse Theatre specialises in comic, dynamic and interactive theatre for 'green field' arts festivals and corporate training. We push the boundaries of immersive performance, moving beyond entertainment to expand peoples’ imaginations, solve problems and bond groups.

Based in Bristol since 2018.  We make a variety of weird funny stuff... Robot walkabout shows... interactive venues... immersive Team Building events... comedy puppet shows... kinetic installations... our project during lockdown number 3 is an online sci fi interactive film making show/game/creative play, where the participants create the work themselvs...

We're very nice... if your interested in our work get in touch!

Founding

Cat & Mouse founded in Brighton 2012 by Joe Mulcrone and Meredith Colchester. Initially working small scale providing interactive characters and small pieces of set for club nights 'Gypsey Disco', the company soon grew to be working with festivals 'Glastonbury' 'Boomtown fair' and companies 'Pfizer' 'Badoo' to rework entire spaces to a certain theme and fill it with performers, music and interactive elements to bring the space to life.
