We have launched a Kickstarter project today to put on a Christmas show in December called Beauty and the Beast to celebrate the commencement of our 35th year anniversary as an inspirational centre of puppetry and related arts. The aim is to reach £2,000 to help us do several things that otherwise would not be possible;
It will help us to renovate our marionette bridge which hasn't been used in over 20 years; mixing and celebrating different kinds of puppetry and arts over the years (including shadow puppetry, marionettes and even digital animation) is a fundamental part of the show.
- Create brand new and very versatile puppets designed to visually amaze the whole family.
- Fund three of puppetry's newest talents to come on board as interns and help develop their future puppetry careers.
This project is about celebrating the past, the present and the future of puppetry, which is what makes it so exceptional. Norwich Puppet Theatre is one of three puppetry centres in the UK and has been providing fantastic puppetry shows and informative workshops for nearly 35 years now and, along with puppetry as a medium, it is a heritage that demands to be celebrated!
