From ‘Punch & Judy’ to ‘Sesame Street’ and ‘Muffin the Mule’ to ‘Hacker T Dog & Dodge’, puppet characters continue to be hugely popular. In this interactive session, some of Britain’s most talented puppeteers from TV, film and theatre will offer an insider view of how this diverse and skilled art form works its magic on the young audience. Just how do puppets get away with things that a real performer can’t, and how do they handle difficult topics more easily? How puppets work on screen and on stage and what creates that audience engagement will be supported by information on how they’re made, plus top tips on using puppets in your productions. And with a few special puppet guests likely to gate-crash, this is one session you don’t want to miss!
