Puppet Theatre Building

Our Layla Holzer is busy at work building a theatre for our puppet show performances on Saturday 2 March at Milkwood Gallery. We will be performing a classic Punch & Judy show along with a shadow puppet version of the Jabberwocky.

As a result Layla has developed a theatre design that will allow for both a shadow play performance and a ‘glove puppet’ type performance as well.

The theatre is looking rather magical already. If you’d like to see a sneak peek I suggest you head over to Layla’s Instagram page to track down some pictures of the build in progress.

I hope we’ll see you at Milkwood Gallery though on Saturday 2 March for an evening of puppetry and fairy tales.
