Getting ready for the Summer.

Postby Chris » 20 May 2017, 23:36

When performing outdoors at Fetes and Shows it is often useful to have some means of attracting a crowd, or something to amuse a small audience while you wait for the crowd to build. I often use a marionette dancing among the kids, sitting on their knees, sharing a high five etc. I decided for this year I wanted a bigger puppet than the one I have been using. I wanted a gentle, non-frightening little boy character. He's coming along. He's about 70cm or 28 inches in old money.

Also Mr. Punch's Pussy Cat needed re-upholstering.

Thanks Richard.
Today I've been on with old big nose - no not that one - but for my Punch show.

I like your marionette a lot, Chris. He is very child friendly. Not so sure how friendly that pussy cat is though!
Hope you have a great summer.
Who'd want a proper job?

Thanks Miraiker.
Actually my pussy cat is getting a bit long in the tooth now, a bit of an old croc actually.
Hope you are busy.
