Tysoe Marionette Group

On Sunday 6th, TMG hosted the November meeting of the British Puppet and Model Theatre Guild, which brings together national practitioners in the art of Puppetry in all its forms.  So the Barn Theatre was full of professionals who had come from all points of the compass, as far away as Leicester, Worthing and Bridgenorth.

BPMTG members were very kind and helpful, witnessing a Preview (really our dress rehearsal) of “Love of Seven Dolls”.  But it was a somewhat nerve-racking experience for us!  The Guild Chairman, Peter Charlton, considered that our Group deserved the highest award for bravery!  Well, that’s one way of putting it!  Valuable comments to help us perfect techniques were received and have since been implemented for our fund-raising shows in November.  Puppetry, particularly in performances combining glove puppets with string marionettes, is technically most demanding, more so if one’s character has to descend stairs or play a guitar whilst driving a veteran model Renault!  But it can also be most fascinating.

We thank all those who have helped the Group on its way to national recognition and who continue to make it possible for us to stage performances raising funds for charity.
