Niki McCretton, Holly Miller & Rob Lee presents Peoples Puppet Project 19 Jan 2020 - 8 Mar 2020

Would you like to take part in the development of a new piece of theatre in Bridport?

Working with the support of experienced artists you will become part of an ensemble group tasked with creating puppets, music and performance for a brand new family friendly show set in the beautiful 1920s Electric Palace theatre, from the foyer to the stage!

Join us for a series of workshops in which your ideas will be explored. No previous experience is necessary!

It begins with you and who knows where it will end?

Join the troupe and take the journey from inception to finale at whatever level you want to. Make puppets, create music, perform if you want to (but you don’t have to!). With this show we want to celebrate the theatres of Bridport.

Sun 19 Jan, 2-4pm at the Electric Palace

This is an opportunity to find out all about the project, meet the lead artists and project team and connect with other people who are also interested. If you come to the taster there is no obligation to commit to the project. It’s just a relaxed opportunity to find out how you might like to get involved.

Send your name and contact mobile/landline number to our project Manager, Sally Vaughan by Sat 18 Jan 2020
