ANGELO for LITTLE ANGEL THEATRE
‘an enchanting show which demonstrates the virtues of the art of puppeteering at its best…a source of endless wonder’ Time Out
Angelo and his family travel round the country playing music, singing songs and performing marvellous balancing tricks: Angelo can even dance on a rope! So when he meets Angelina, who is sad and lonely and trapped in her mean uncle’s house, Angelo knows just how to help…
Designed by Lyndie Wright and directed by Sarah Wright, this magical production is a Little Angel classic. First performed to packed audiences in 1974, Angelo has remained one of the company’s most popular productions. Quentin Blake’s witty and energetic drawings are delightfully interpreted as table-top puppets manipulated by some of the UK’s finest puppeteers.
The production uses a sophisticated ‘black box’ technique to magically create the acrobatic tricks and amazing stunts of Angelo and his family. Let us welcome you to the Little Angel this Christmas with a show full of fun and heart!
