The second puppet show from super-talented Ian Nicholson and Sam Wilder, this one based on another Jon Klassen picture book “This Is Not My Hat”, and it is wonderful! Take a look, it’s free to view on the Little Angel Theatre youtube channel. Kudos to John Klassen and his publishers Walker Books for giving permission for this puppet adaptation – they must be chuffed with the outcome.
And have a go at making your own simple puppets and theatre like the ones in the show. I’ll put up some ideas for this soon, just in case you’re a bit stuck, but really all you need is a biggish cardboard box for the theatre and some cereal-packet type card for the puppets, have a go! 🙂
I just watched the premiere of a puppet show inspired by Jon Klassen’s book “I Want My Hat Back“. It was created entirely during the Covid 19 lockdown, for the Little Angel Theatre Company, here in the UK. It’s now on the Little Angel Theatre’s Youtube channel and available for the next 14 days, and it’s wonderful
Something to enjoy and smile about on this locked-down Easter Monday. Stay well everyone! 🙂
I was very lucky to get the opportunity to sit in on some undergraduate puppetry sessions at Exeter University recently. Led by the brilliant Cariad Astles, I got a real insight into performing with puppets and working out what makes a good performance and puppetry piece.
Really interesting, and extremely useful for a kids puppet show project I have got on the bubble… I managed to sketch some of the students rehearsing with their puppets, great body poses and faces. Here they are, and pictures of the puppets they were using.
The guys have been very busy making all kinds of props for their production of Alice in Wonderland recently. They really are lovely and I think it’s going to look very special when they perform on May 17th in Honiton. Here are a few of the puppets and masks we made last week…
