Puppetry Skills

Visit the backstage workshops, where some of the NT’s most famous puppets were made. See the stages they appeared on. By getting hands-on with puppets from NT family productions children will see how they are designed and learn some basic principles of puppetry. After lunch, your class will work with a professional puppeteer to create their own pet dog puppet out of simple materials.

They will learn how to bring it to life and teach it tricks before taking it home to take impress their friends and family with their new skills!
