Schools Workshops

INTRODUCE YOUR PUPILS TO THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF THEATRE IN THESE UNIQUE SHADOW PUPPETRY WORKSHOPS…

 

As part of THE LION KING’s partnership with the Tunbridge Wells Puppetry Festival, the award-winning musical is offering a limited number of primary schools the opportunity to take part in a unique shadow puppetry workshop. Led by Disney’s specially trained teaching artists, pupils will:

 

  • Explore the story and themes of THE LION KING
  • Learn how different types of puppetry are used to tell the story in the show
  • Create their own shadow puppets and devise stories

 

Each session will run for 2 hours and is available for up to thirty KS2 pupils. Schools will need to provide a suitable area where practical craft work can take place. As part of the experience, puppet making materials, performance screen and lights will be provided.

 

Workshops are available from 11 – 13 October 2017 with morning and afternoon sessions available. A fee of £50 will be charged by TWPF to cover administration costs. Spaces are very limited, for more information email: ailsa@twpuppetryfestival.org
