Everyone beavering away, in Offices,  Studio’s,  Caves,  Theatre’s and the Streets of Nottingham.  Completing puppets, sets, sewing, risk-assessments, orders, invoices, tickets, chairs, gazebo’s, domes, van’s  and yet so very much more.

We shall be starting tomorrow evening on World Puppet Day, 21st March 2018.

Still no sign of Urban Foxes.

Last making session. From now on it will be honing performance skills in preparation for the Big Parade on Sunday 25th March when so many puppets of so many styles and sizes will be meeting.

The whole gang has worked so very hard and with such good humour.

I cannot thank enough for the special  contributions of our volunteer assistants            Izzy,  Richard and Sophie.


So very proud of my four 3rd Year Students with their production of ‘Our House’.  A performance for  Year 1 children at Mellers Primary School.  The narrative and look of the work was closely influenced by research the group did with the children as the piece was devised. The children were delighted to see elements of their own work in the final show.

The group showed much resourcefulness , not only with the acquisition of materials, but also with performance ideas’s  and making the work accessible to the target age group.  Strong Design elements as we come to expect of Theatre Design Students. They rose to the challenge of performing the work in two spaces which could not have been more different. In the ‘Black Box ‘of the Waverley Studio Theatre and the bright white box of Mellers school hall.
