Whilst the Theatre doors are shut, Norwich Puppet Theatre are bringing some puppet joy online!
Visit their YouTube channel for hours of free fun! They have shared LOADS of puppet-crafting videos and the opportunity to learn more about about puppetry and their live shows with some behind the scenes clips.
Could you somehow create a neighbourhood puppet show…? Perhaps you could film your puppet show and send it to everyone through your neighbourhood WhatsApp group? Or could you create a show with each household providing a scene? The Puppet Theatre YouTube channel has videos describing how to make puppets out of waste materials like egg-boxes, like the picture of Goldilocks and the Three Bears above!
The theatre would absolutely love to see your at-home makes, so send them your puppet-pics by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
