As well as interviewing Samantha Womack at Curve yesterday we were also thrilled to learn more about stage puppetry from The Lion, The Witch and The Wardobe’s stage puppet master, Toby Olié. Toby spoke to us at Curve Theatre about his work with puppets for the stage and gave us some fascinating insights into the art of puppetry. For a look at Toby’s brilliant work check out his puppetry in performance website.
