Albert Goes 2 W-s-M First Rehearsals

This week we had our first rehearsal for our up and coming new show 'Albert Goes 2 W-s-M'.  Here's the gang ready to get involved.


 These two puppets are looking into each others eyes very intently because I have set them an exercise highlighting sight lines.  It takes a bit of practice to get used to where your puppet's eyes are.

Here I've set them a task that gets them to create a scene where the two puppets have having their first date.

Here's where we'll be performing.  No, not on the sea but under that big white building on the right (the SeaQuarium).

If you are interested in giving us a hand in putting this show on then let us know in the comments and we'll be happy to let you know when our next rehearsal is.

 Here are some of the puppets we have on a short term loan.

We are hoping to use a selection of these puppets for our upcoming puppet show 'Albert Goes To W-S-M'

 It's wonderful to see how expressive they can be, even when they are not doing anything.

Puppets can be wonderful expressions of feelings and ideas that we have.

 Steve is modeling these puppets and look! Here's Amanda photobombing the puppet's fashion shoot, naughty Amanda.

 We're not too sure what this is, what do you think?  An alien from the depths of space, or a sea creature from the deeps of seas?

As you can see we have just as many animals as we do humans, this gives us a bit of variety in the shows we can give.  Also they're easy to keep as pets!

The Creative Experience workshop

Our first creative workshop was held earlier this year. The participants came up with some brilliant comic improv. Here they play three guests on a chat show, all ex-wives and lovers of David Attenborough. This is what happens when you free your creativity.
