Tysoe Marionette Group

The new season is well underway with two parallel productions.

 Our Junior Team, preparing “The Surprising Story of Alfred, Warder of the Tower”, will resume frightening poor old Alfred with floating heads and skeletons on Thursday 7th October from 5pm to 6pm and continue rehearsing every Thursday throughout the Autumn Term.  We aim to have this play ready for matinees in the Christmas season.  Presently we have four volunteers, being the minimum needed to present the show, but would like to recruit two more keen youngsters, boys or girls, not less than 10 yrs old

Our core team also meets on Thursdays from 7pm to 8:30pm, and is hard at work on our dramatisation of Paul Gallico’s  “Love of Seven Dolls”.  This exquisitely-crafted story, first published in 1954 and set in France, is particularly suited to puppetry as it explores the relationship between a Bretonnaise orphan and seven dolls in a puppet booth.  This time we are using both glove puppets and stringed marionettes, totalling 14 characters, which, along with four different sets, give plenty of scope for artistic talent.


We are currently auditioning voices for recording the sound track.  There are some lovely parts for people who can pronounce French words.  We also need a teenage boy’s voice.


Anybody interested in participating in either of these productions is invited to contact Jon and Ann Beeny on Tysoe 680431, or Email:  JonandAnn@annbeeny.f9.co.uk
