‘Peta & the Whale’ is a puppet show about a little girl trying to understand the creatures of the deep. Her grandpa was an old sailor and what he knows of the sea is in direct contrast to her romantic inclinations. ‘Peta & the Whale’ will premier at the Melbourne Fringe Festival in 2015. For this finance free development showing, director Philip Millar invited Franciscus Henri to perform as Grandpa and Jhess Knight as Peta with Danny Miller and Victoria Osborne as puppeteers. The showing was part of La Mama’s Festival of Puppetry in July 2015. Music was primarily sea shanties performed by Franciscus Henri and we were mega thrilled The Dreadnoughts agreed we could use of their version of Old Maui for this ‘Making Of’. Please check out our Pozible Campaign to help build some of the big whales pozi.be/petaandthewhale and we look forward to seeing everyone at the North Melbourne Town Hall in September 2015!
