A puppeteer from Welwyn has been helping kids through storytelling while they are under lockdown.
‘Fairy’ Tara Harris’ life completely changed when she was told – while performing in Julia Donaldson’s ‘Zog’– that there would be no tour and therefore no job.
She said: “I was devastated, however, having already started my own storytelling and theatre business for children back in 2017, I knew I already had something I could do.”
So for the last few months, she has entertained children through interactive storytelling and puppetry for free on Facebook and Instagram.
One parent told her: “Instead of my daughter remembering how scared she felt during lockdown, she will remember Fairy Tara telling her stories.”
