Parents with children aged 5 to 11 can enjoy the award-winning The Little Angel Theatre’s streaming of another show right now on the Theatre’s YouTube channel.
This digital retelling is inspired by their 2018 production Junk (which saw us transform our studio space into a recycling plant). It will revisit Scoop, the junk lady, and show you into her secret space – a place where she gathers and stores all of the interesting things that other people throw away, and uses them to tell to tell stories.
The original production featured set and puppets made entirely out of recycled materials – including Bertie the bottle, jellyfish made from plastic bags, a sewer rat made from old slippers and a giant umbrella octopus.
Little Angel Theatre say “During our closure period, we’ve been releasing daily resources showing families how they can use recycled materials such as egg boxes, cardboard, newspaper and even coffee capsules to make their own puppets at home. We hope that this performance will highlight the magic that can be found in every day objects and further inspire children to get creative with the ‘junk’ that we can all find around our homes.”
This production reunited the original company of Junk and was filmed with a skeleton crew in Little Angel Studios, following social distancing guidelines.
The show is free to access and aimed at children aged from 5 to 11.
The show was created and performed whilst observing spatial distancing. It lasts twenty minutes.
Although this show is free to watch, please consider making a donation to the Little Angel Theatre which does vital work in helping younger children to access the joy of theatre.
You can watch the show here indefinitely
