Over the past 60 years, a huge range of designers have brought their unique puppet designs to life on the Little Angel Theatre stage. In People Behind the Puppets, Little Angel’s very own puppet ‘Angel’ meets and interviews these designers, finding out more about their experiences of puppetry design and why they love working in the field.
Each designer brings along an easy puppet make that children can download from littleangeltheatre.com and follow along at home.
The first episode is an interview with puppet designer Maia Kirkman-Richards whose work for Little Angel Theatre includes The Slightly Annoying Elephant and The Further Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat. For more details on Maia’s work see https://www.puppetsbymaia.com/.
