Junk Puppet Making & Performance Workshop

Come make puppets with us! We will be constructing and playing with puppets made from everyday objects and materials, working out how they move, what personalities they have, what stories we can tell, and how we can alter their design to change their character. We will find out how they can interact with each other and human characters, and how to operate them, to give them life.

The workshop is free and you don’t need any experience! If you have any questions please email carl@kdctheatre.com

Autumn Season auditions

Season Launch party – 13 Sept

Oh my, it’s theatre’ing time again! Come to our season launch party on 13 September, from 7:30pm at Hoop & Grapes pub in Farringdon Street. You can grab a beer, mingle with all the nice people, chat to the directors — oh did I say Directors? Well yes I did because we’ve got a bunch of shows that we need you to be involved with!

Come theatre-types all, both KDC regulars and the new-and-shiny. We’re going to be needing a cast for all this lot, so come and show us what you got (auditions will be 17-19 September). If you’re not one of those actor-types, there are also a number of non-cast roles that we will need to fill, so come round, say hi! We are a very friendly bunch of folks and can’t wait to meet you!

Here’s the lineup for this season, full details in the linked audition notices:
