Puppet Performer | Two Day Holiday Workshop

“My daughter came home buzzing with excitement. She had a ball!” – Parent

Imagine, design, build, perform.
Creativity will run wild as your children guided through the process of imagining and crafting their very own puppet show! Two day workshops run from 9am – 3pm for two consecutive days. We hope to see your children there making, creating and having fun.

Day 1: A full day of puppet-making and learning about puppetry from 9.00am – 3.00pm. The children will also go to watch the 1pm performance of the current show, Roald Dahl’s The Twits and have the chance to talk to the cast and crew afterwards.

Day 2: The children will learn about the art of performing with puppets and devising their very own performance in small groups. At 2.30pm family and friends are invited to come along and watch the budding puppeteers perform their very own show with their carefully crafted puppets!
