Little Ray Puppets

21 Nov

Working in London:

Little Ray’s Corina Bona has currently been swept into a whirlwind of work away from Bristol to London. She is devising Goldilocks with The Little Angel theatre, which opens on the 7th of December running till the 29th of January 2011. The production is a modern take on the Goldilocks story, it uses music, storytelling and puppetry to tell the tale of a small feisty Goldie who is a world traveller. The bears in contrast are so familiar with their home enviroment that they are almost part of the furniture. The production is still in development and we look forward to seeing its completion. After its month long run at the Little Angel it will doing a national tour so watch this space for details.
