2015-02-15: theHub: The Prodigal Son

Posted on March 17th, 2015

Continuing our tour of The Prodigal Son it was great to join theHub and share the story with them.

It turned out that this month was their 8th birthday so it was wonderful to be able join the celebrations as well.

Don’t tell anyone, but Sally ate more cake than is good for her and had tummyache afterwards

2014-12-24: HBC: Puppets, Pirates, Jesus & Me!

Posted on March 17th, 2015

On Christmas Eve we were part of a musical put on at church – click on the link to read more about Puppets, Pirates, Jesus and Me!

Stuck behind our curtain we couldn’t enjoy the rest of the show in all it fullness, but it certainly sounded like lots of fun was being had out there and that all the hard work putting the musical together was well worth it.

We were delighted to be invited to take The Prodigal Son to Cross Links at HBC.  We are always received warmly here and our audience enjoys and actively participates in the performance which is always good fun.

2014-07-06: Holy Trinity, Bengeo: The Prodigal Son

Posted on March 17th, 2015

We were delighted to return to a warm welcome at Holy Trinity where we debuted ‘The Prodigal Son’.  This was a more ambitious script for us involving several scenes and all the puppets had a role which they thoroughly enjoyed.

Of course with everyone involved it was a bit crowded backstage but we worked round each other and added our part to a lovely family service.

2013-03-06: Hillmead Primary School: The Good Samaritan

Posted on March 21st, 2013

We recently presented The Good Samaritan at Hillmead Primary School.  Cherry and Tim were very excited to make their debut here and we were hard pressed to keep them quiet!

The children were very responsive, especially over the choice of football teams(!) and enjoyed each puppet’s appearance.  We all had a great time sharing this story that Jesus told with the school.  We hope the children enjoyed colouring the door hangers and use them to remember the puppet’s visit.

2013-02-03: Cross Links: ‘Love Reaches’

Posted on February 6th, 2013

We were delighted to return to Cross Links at Hertford Baptist Church.  The theme of their meeting was Love and we contributed a mime called ‘Love Reaches’.  This is a very simple story told by Sally and a peeper.   The peeper notices Sally is sad and attempts to cheer her up.  He tries flowers, a present, and money, all are rejected.  The only thing that pierces the sadness is when he offers God’s love.

This is a very affecting mime which we then followed with the energetic song ‘God Loves Me’ which Becky and Blue taught to the group and everyone enjoyed singing along with them.

We left them wanting more, which is always nice, and look forward to being able to make a return visit.
