Beauty and The Beast Pictures

We went to see O.H. Platt High School's production of Beauty and The Beast on Friday night, and really enjoyed the show. Congratulations to the cast, crew and everyone involved ! We also took some pictures of the puppets and wolves in action to share with you. These were taken from our seats, with no flash, so they aren't the best photos in the world, but you can at least see how they were used.

Wolf Costumes Sneak Peak

Pictures of the Beauty and the Beast puppets and costumes in action are coming soon, but I wanted to share this close up of the wolf heads from the construction process. The heads are masks that cover the performers entire head, and then the performer sees out of a mesh panel inside the wolf mouth.

Puppets and Costumes for Beauty and The Beast

For the past several weeks we have been hard at work making shadow puppets and wolf costumes for the upcoming production of Beauty and the Beast at OH Platt High School in Meriden, CT. The students have also been hard at work rehearsing the show to get ready for their performances on 3/24-3/26 at 7 pm each day. It should be a great show, and if you are close enough to see it, you really should. More information about tickets is at the school's website. We will be posting pictures of the shadow puppets and wolves in action soon too, so if you can't make it to the show you can still get a little sneak peak.
