Finn Caldwell: The Secret Life of Puppets



July 24, 2024


11.00 - 12.30pm


Theatre Royal Haymarket

Join us for a Masterclass with Olivier Award-winning director, designer, and performer, Finn Caldwell, as we discover the secret life of puppets. In 2022, Finn earned an Olivier Award for his work as Puppet Co-Designer on Life of Pi and received a nomination for Best Theatre Choreographer for the same production. His impressive portfolio includes roles as puppetry director and co-designer on shows such as The Lorax (Old Vic), Ocean at the End of the Lane (National Theatre and West End), and Grinning Man (Bristol Old Vic and West End).

Finn is passionate about the playful possibilities of puppetry to stage seemingly impossible moments and is committed to pursuing truth in the inner lives of the characters and creatures he conjures.

Join us at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, where Finn will work with a selection of Masterclass members, demonstrating the technical and dramaturgical skills that make puppet theatre so breathtaking. Don't miss this opportunity to witness the secret life of puppets and learn from one of the industry's finest.

If you would like to be considered for this opportunity, to act or puppeteer (some experience of puppetry is essential, this can be a one off workshop), please book your free place and complete this short application form.

Deadline to apply: Friday 12 July
