About Little Angel Theatre.
Little Angel Theatre creates inspiring stories using puppets. Puppetry is at the heart of everything they do, from igniting the imaginations of the young people to inspiring tomorrow’s puppeteers.
For over 50 years, their high-quality puppet theatre has thrilled families. Productions have been experienced by thousands of young people both in their London home, across the UK and internationally.
Little Angel’s Education Programme works with schools, youth and community groups. The programme includes a Saturday Puppet Club, Crafty Kids Club and Youth Theatre. They also run regular Kids Fun Days and holiday clubs.
Little Angel Theatre’s At Home Resource Hub.
Their theatre may be closed to the public, but that hasn’t stopped them getting creative! The new hub includes activities, exercises and stories to help educate children, aged 3-11, in a fun and entertaining way.
Activities are split into two groups. The first, for Key Stage 1 (ages 3-6) that’s focused on adult help. The second, for Key Stage (ages 7-11) with independent working. All of their guides are created to be as accessible as possible. Guides use simple materials that you’ll be able to find around the house.
At-home activities for ages 3-6 (KS1).
Ever wanted to make a guitar, lion mask or a bear puppet? Now you can with their creative ‘How to make…’ video guides. Activities are easy to follow, aimed at KS1 children (ages 3-6), and focused on adult help.
At-home activities for ages 7-11 (KS2).
Learn how to create Gingerbread Man Finger Puppets and your own, full-scale puppet show at home. Activities are easy to follow, aimed at KS2 children (ages 7-11), and focused on independent learning.
Jon Klassen Performance Series.
Little Angel Theatre is hosting two Jon Klassen stories. The first, This is Not My Hat, will be live from Sunday 3 May at 11am. The second, We Found a Hat will be live from Sunday 24 May at 11am.
These puppet-filled adaptations of Jon Klassen’s stories are free to watch and suitable for ages 3+. You can view both stories on their YouTube channel.
