DAHL’S WORLD PREMIERE AT SPARE PARTS THEATRE

Posted in art, children, city of fremantle, culture, Uncategorized by freoview on January 6, 2018

 

 

Spare Parts Puppet Theatre returns home to their Short Street theatre in Fremantle for the summer holidays with the world premiere of Roald Dahl’s The Twits.

The new razztwizzling adaption of Roald Dahl’s very irreverent classic opens on January 8 and will run till January 27.

The world premiere season of Dahl’s jumpswiffling comedy of two grizzly old grunions is a super high energy combination of storytelling, puppetry and physical theatre.

The Twits takes you into the world of grumpy old couple, Mrs and Mrs Twit who haven’t had a good thought or done a kind thing in years. They like nothing more than dreaming up terrible tricks to play on each other. They are bound to put a grizzly grin on your face!

Good news for Freo’s children and grown-ups who love puppetry. The SPARE PARTS PUPPET THEATRE company is coming back home to Fremantle, after a short stint at UWA for building renovations of their Short Street premises

They are performing the World Premiere of Roald Dahl’s very irreverent classic, The Twits, the jumpswiffling comedy of two grizzly old grunions is a super high energy combination of storytelling, puppetry and physical theatre.

The Twits is a ringbeller adventure of scrottiness and goodness, rebellion and justice. The show’s gloriumptious blend of comedy and puppetry is the perfect way to have a whoopsy wiffling time this summer with the whole family.

The world premiere season of The Twits runs from January 8 to 27 with daytime and special twilight performances scheduled throughout the run. For performance times and tickets for The Twits, as well as the company’s School of Puppetry holiday workshops and many other programs and activities, visit http://www.sppt.asn.au or call 08 9335 5044.

ADOPT A SPARE PARTS PUPPET!

Posted in fremantle by freoview on June 13, 2014

A message from Fremantle’s delightful  SPARE PARTS PUPPET THEATRE:

You are invited to become a member of our Spare Parts Puppet family. Our Puppet Parents help us keep puppetry alive in WA by supporting the creation of new shows like Tales from Outer Suburbia, Miss Lily’s Fabulous Feather Boa and Hachiko. Donations to the Adopt a Puppet program also support us to tour shows like Hachikō and Moominpappa at Sea to schools across regional WA.

To acknowledge and thank you for your contribution, you will receive: a personalised adoption certificate, your name on the Adopt a Puppet wall, and the opportunity to go on back stage tours, and other exclusive events

Your chosen puppet may have starred in your favourite show or they may just look a little lonely and in need of some support. You can view the range of puppets up for adoption by clicking on the SPPT website.

Adopting a puppet can make a wonderful gift and all donations are tax-deductible. So why not make your next trip to the theatre extra special by becoming a Puppet Parent and joining the Spare Parts Family? There are a couple of ways that you can adopt a puppet, either online, over the phone 08 9335 5044 or in person.

A 12 month adoption ranges from $100-$500.

Note: Adopted puppets will be exhibited at Spare Parts Puppet Theatre for the duration of the adoption.

ABOUT SPARE PARTS AND PET LOVE

Posted in fremantle by freoview on April 1, 2014


SPARE PARTS THEATRE
is the last (wo)man standing as far as Fremantle theatres are concerned, with the Harbour Theatre moving to Mosman Park, so this is a very opportune time for all of us to support the next performance.

HACHIKO  will run from April 12 to 26 every weekday at 10 am and 1 pm. There are also weekend performances, so check out the website for all details! The play is 50 minutes long and suitable for all ages over five years old, so that luckily includes me.

HACHIKO is based on a true story from Japan about what great joy and companionship an animal can bring to our lives. It’s all about simplicity, beauty and gentle storytelling in this Spare Parts production, that uses papercraft puppetry.

I have never left Spare Parts disappointed after a play, so am really looking forward to this one.

FREMANTLE NEEDS SPARE PARTS

Posted in art, fremantle by freoview on February 22, 2014

It’s always good to have spare parts of things in case something goes wrong, so Fremantle should be holding on firmly to our cute Spare Parts puppet theatre, as we had to let Deckchair  and Kulcha go.

We often take for granted the great little places we have and forget to support them, so let’s be pro-active and make sure that every future production of Spare Parts will be sell outs. That’s the only way we can make sure they also don’t go belly up.

Fremantle needs to get much better at supporting the arts in our city. Visit art galleries and studios, go to theatre and film productions and concerts, support the local music industry, join the jazz club, etc. There is a lot YOU and I can do to help make Fremantle the city of arts and artists again. Let’s do it!
