To celebrate the theatre’s 55th birthday we’re sharing a story or conversation every week for the next year. Expect tales from puppeteers, makers, staff members and brilliant people who have a long standing connection to Little Angel Theatre.
Here’s the first part of a brilliant, funny and insightful conversation between Lyndie Wright, Ronnie Le Drew and Linda Stanfield.
Lyndie co-founded Little Angel Theatre in 1961 with her husband John Wright, the video is shot in her wonderfully creative workshop. Ronnie Le Drew’s involvement with the theatre began as a young man, starting as an apprentice before launching into his own highly successful career as a puppeteer and is now an Honorary Associate of the theatre, along with Lyndie. Linda Stanfield, began her journey with the Little Angel serving coffees for the sum of £1 per day and then went on to run the theatre with John.
