Finger & Thumb Theatre

October 20, 2015 @ 6:00 PM


Drew Colby, Finger and Thumb Theatre, is the only professional hand shadow puppeteer in Britain and an internationally
recognised artist. He has paired up with cellist Penny Callow and has created a spellbinding, poetic and funny interpretation
of the Hans Christian Andersen classic €œThe Ugly Duckling€. Everyday objects including plastic spoons and kitchen colanders become beautiful landscapes and shimmering fish; combined with, live music and breath-taking hand shadows this is a magical hour long show for the whole family with laughs and a few surprises The show features specially composed music and recorded soundscapes.

Target audience: 4+ Family.

Colby shadowed cats and dogs, rabbits and birds (perched and in flight) and even a bear, elephant and monkey. In one word, it was a delight. The Times of India
