Little Angel Youth Theatre (11-18)

(For Senior school and sixth form students)

Summer Term:

24 April – 19 June (with a half term break on Wed 29 May)
Wednesdays 6 – 8.30pm

Working with professional puppet maker Judith Hope, participants will create their own unique shadow box theatre to take home.

Shadow puppetry can be a magical and inventive way to tell stories. You will experiment with various types of shadow puppetry and create your very own theatre-for-one shadow box. You will write and storyboard your own show, using any theme that inspires you. This is an opportunity to let your creativity run wild and explore this dynamic art form whilst honing your puppet making skills.

This term includes a show visit to Suffrajitsu on Saturday 8 June at 4.30pm.
