Brighton Puppetry School

The Brighton Mermaids

Amanda has just returned from a week long puppetry school, run by the fantastic Brighton Puppetry School. A joyful week of making and playing was had by all, skilfully led by Darren, Beccy and Is, who run the school. We explored a wide range of puppetry skills, all held together with a clever adaptation of The Little Mermaid (Hans Christian Anderson), written by Beccy especially for puppets.

After a very busy week, the 10 participants performed the puppet play to a packed audience, who seemed to love it as much as we did.
