Puppets with a Tale to Tell

35 years ago, Ripon resident, Margaret Prince was asked by a librarian friend to produce some hand puppets for a story-time project.

The theme was to be ‘The House that Jack Built’ and so she made puppets from scrap materials and a backdrop with opening windows and doors for the puppets to pop through.

Years passed before the puppet show was resurrected for young nursery children and a special needs group.

Now the puppets and their charming house have been brought back to life by Hazelsong Theatre.

They’ve been given a facelift and a new script, ready for another generation of children to enjoy, beginning with our audience on Saturday morning at The Unicorn Hotel.

Thank you for preserving them, Margaret!

There are two opportunities to see the show.
