Welcome to the backstage area at The Harlequin Puppet Theatre website. The Menu is on the left, and below at the bottom.
Here we hope to cater for fellow puppeteers and puppet enthusiasts with a little bit of extra information. We hope that you will find the notes about manipulation of the marionette, its stringing and control, will be useful. You can be assured that everything we propose is based upon a lifetime's experience in professional puppetry.
Please don't miss the Ideas for Puppeteers section. This already contains much useful material, and will continue to grow.
