Paper Shaper - Childrens Puppet Theatre

Paper Shaper - Childrens Puppet Theatre


Little Dog Barking is a leading puppet theatre for children, creating and presenting quality theatre works for early childhood, primary school and family audiences.

Little Dog Barking brings a public performance of Papershaper to The Globe Theatre - this is open to the public, school and early childhood centre bookings. Under 2's & Supervising teachers free on a 1:6 basis.

Suitable for ages 2 - 10 years old (up to and including Year 6).

Directed by Peter Wilson
Puppet design Tim Denton
Music by Gareth Farr
Performed by Peter Wilson and Kenny King

Short and simple, yet rich with emotion and humour, Paper Shaper is the antithesis of big-brand kids’ entertainment such as Hi-5 or The Wiggles. With utmost care and skill the company weaves together a magical world that will introduce children to the true beauty that theatre is capable of expressing.

The story springs straight from the realms of imagination and curiosity that children inhabit. What happens to that little man on the side of the rubbish in when no-one is looking? He creates a whole universe out of people’s paper, with a paper sun, paper trees, paper flowers and paper butterflies. When a long-faced but cheerful man visits the Paper Shaper’s park for a picnic, the two start out as opponents, but soon become playmates and finally, friends.

This tale, devised by director Peter Wilson and puppet designer Tim Denton, with music by Gareth Farr, needs no dialogue to communicate to its junior audience. The combination of mask work and puppetry opens up some wonderful possibilities for visual storytelling.
