The stage adaptation by Mike Kenny of the classic children's book by Quentin Blake (known for illustrating Matilda and The BFG and other works by Roald Dahl). In addition to directing, I am design and building puppets based on the original watercolor illustrations. I couldn't be more excited to jump in to the design process!
This week, I started working on a mock up of a dragon character who appears and causes havoc with his fiery breath.
Below are some snap shots I took between steps. During this part of the process, I'll decide how large the puppets need to be, what they need to do in each scene, and what materials to use. I'll continue to post more photos as I move forward in the process, so please check back soon!
