Stanningley Primary School Christmas Performance

Standard
During December 2012, Musical ARC returned to Stanningley Primary School to perform ‘World on a String’ in its entirety for all the children and staff previously engaged in Musical ARC workshops.

Using a new double screen technique, professional puppeteer Rebekah Caputo was able to tell the ‘Crows and the Serpent’ story on one screen whilst Musical ARC members took a turn as puppeteers, using specially designed head puppets to bring the story even more to life on the second large screen. As the photos show, the rabbit puppet from the ‘Whale and the Elephant” story was a firm favourite amongst staff and children alike.
As always Musical ARC composed and played the accompanying soundtrack and also played live before and after the performance. A fantastic end to the year for Musical ARC.

World on a String

Standard


We are currently recording the music for our next show “World On A String” featuring Rebekah Caputo a Leeds based Puppeteer and shadow theater artist. The show combines 3 traditional tales from around the world. The stories are brought to life with narrative, music, and puppetry and the show promises to captivate young and old alike.

As a first-Musical Arc are producing all the music to accompany the show in a recording project to be played within the performances. This is proving to be a great experience for all involved. The resulting CD will be on sale at our performances just in time for Christmas!
