The Puppet Van drives into Dorset

HALF a String Theatre brings the Puppet Van to Dorset with The Lost Colour, a show full of clowning, puppets, and paint all told from the top of the van, which will be at Broadmayne First School at 2pm on and Lytchett Matravers village hall at 2pm on 21st and 22nd August.

Join painter and alchemist Malcolm Brushel as he tries to find the pinky-est pink paint on the planet! Through cracking rocks, mashing every conceivable vegetable and even bottling and fermenting his own cow’s wee, he has created every colour imaginable on his quest to make the most vibrant pink ever seen.

The company creates spectacular worlds and powerful original stories. With design at the forefront, their transforming sets bring a collective wonder to every performance. This new show, The Lost Colour, is a joyful explosion of colour, performed on top of The Puppet Van.

After the show children can use poster paint, brushes and glitter in a hands-on workshop with Puppet Van designer Peter. Places are limited and must be booked – www.artsreach.co.uk
