Toy Theatre shows have been enchanting audiences since the 1800s. This autumn The Goodlife Centre is offering people a chance to see the small but beautifully formed world of toy theatre.
These evenings will include a short introduction to the show, a rendition of the play by the performers and an opportunity to learn how to construct your own toy theatre to create your own mini production.
Come and learn how you can use these techniques to become your own impresario.
Performed by Philip Dalziel and Debby Brown.
A classic toy theatre production with melodrama, moving sets and a finale of a storm at sea. Philip has been a keen toy theatre enthusiast since the 1970s and was a founder member of The Toy Theatre Club at Pollocks toy shop as a teenager.
Expect to add extra excitement by joining in with weather effects and crowd scenes.
Philip Dalziel has been a drama teacher and is now enjoying retirement and is assisted by Debby Brown, a devotee of toy theatre and an expert of its history.
