theLASTree Toy Theatre is a miniature recreation of the full-size show, preserving the original’s compelling nature. Made of 100% scrap materials and supplies from the original and from previous theatre productions, the 27 miniature road puppets and a proscenium stage theatre were created with the purpose of a solo-puppeteer hidden from view under the proscenium’s floor. This 45-minute puppet show is intended for an intimate experience, enabling the urgent critique to reach the broadest geographic and social audiences.
The original version requires 5 stage crew members and 12 puppeteers to manipulate 27 puppets, (one puppet is a 26-foot-long whale); 142 cars and 6 soft set pieces on a large proscenium stage. The full-size show is in storage at this moment waiting for the next opportunity to be performed.
