This year DNA Puppetry took off to the ‘greatest show on earth’ once again with an all women family team of Glasto Goddesses! The Kidzfield celebrates 25 years this festival and in DNA Puppetry’s 25 year history, we have performed in the Kidzfield and Theatre fields almost every year, with most of our shows!
For 2019, DNA presented a new storytelling show, ‘Tales from the Magic Carpet – Aladdin’ with vintage puppets and props, performed and created by Rachel Riggs with Cerrie Beech on percussion, and assistance from Georgina Solo/Adele Greaves. We performed everyday in the Kidzfield Big Top for families, with the line up including Andy from Cbeebies and the great Basil Brush!.
DNA also present crafting workshops each day with Sarah Hicks and Emma Liddle taking care of the make and play activities, making recycled creations with help from the team.
Georgina Solo has made our DNA puppets for years and we were grateful to have her back with us, making sure DNA’s walkabout puppets were in tip top condition and making set/props instantly on site!
Added to this were our well loved walkabout puppets – the talking Baby, the Rainbow cat, Grumpy puss and Puppy plus marionettes. Performed by our team, Cerrie, Rebecca, Adele and Rachel ,we love to be part of the great and much loved Kidz Field! Thanks to Emma Liddle for all the photos, all the DNA puppetry team, Tony and Emma Cordy, and all the team.
