Toy Theatre: Mr Turner Gets Steamed Up

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

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.

Written, painted and preformed by Robert Poulter.

This show looks at Turner's paintings of his modern world - steam ships and trains, and his relationship with Mrs Booth his Margate landlady!

Robert Poulter has taken the traditional medium of toy theatre as a starting point and written and designed original productions which use movement, light and sound to create a new theatrical experience in miniature.
