Video: Storm Boy puppetry

Date posted: 12 Aug 2013Author: STC Production: Storm Boy

An inside look into the development of the three distinctly different pelicans – Mr Percival, Mr Ponder and Mr Proud; Storm Boy Puppetry Director Peter Wilson talks about creating intelligent, idiosyncratic characters and the exciting direction of puppet theatre.

This video was filmed during rehearsals for our 2013 premiere season and features Michael Smith and Shaka Cook as the spirited trio of pelicans. Our much anticipated 2015 reprisal features puppeteers Anthony Mayor and Phil Dean Walford.
