Little Angel Theatre Launches ‘People Behind The Puppets’

4 min read

Little Angel Theatre have today released the first episode of new online series People Behind the Puppets as part of the theatre’s 60th anniversary celebrations. Featuring an interview with puppet designer Maia Kirkman-Richards, the first episode is available now. A new interview will be released each week with Oliver Hymans, Alicia Britt and Jimmy Grimes next to be featured.

Watch the first episode below!

Over the past 60 years, a huge range of designers have brought their unique puppet designs to life on the Little Angel Theatre stage. In People Behind the Puppets, Little Angel’s very own puppet ‘Angel’ meets and interviews these designers, finding out more about their experiences of puppetry design and why they love working in the field. Each designer brings along an easy puppet make that children can download from littleangeltheatre.com and follow along at home.

The first episode is an interview with puppet designer Maia Kirkman-Richards whose work for Little Angel Theatre includes The Slightly Annoying Elephant and The Further Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat. For more details on Maia’s work see https://www.puppetsbymaia.com/.

“Every day, from here to there, funny things are everywhere” – Dr Seuss
Meet a family of zany Eggs on Legs, living in a lost pocket of the globe. One day the wind blows a huge egg into their tree and they are excited to play with it. But what happens if it hatches and can they protect it from the slithery snake?

Garlic Theatre conjures a poetic, Dr Seuss world full of eggcentric puppets and music to make you roll around with laughter. A cracking family show bursting with wonder and surprise – you will never look at an egg in the same way again. Each performance will include an eggciting post-show workshop of around 15 minutes to get you in the mood for Easter.
