When a little girl cuts out a string of paper dolls she takes them by the hand and together they go on a fantastical adventure whirling through their home and garden. Ticky, Tacky, Jackie the Backie, Jim with two noses and Jo with the bow fly through time and tear across worlds of fun and excitement. They face the jurassic clutches of a toy dinosaur and the snapping jaws of the oven-glove crocodile, and then a very real boy with very real scissors threatens to snip their adventure short… Adapted from the acclaimed book by Julia Donaldson, this magical tale is brought to life through puppetry and music. The Paper Dolls is aimed at ages 3 – 8. It brings to life the imaginative world of a little girl and the paper dolls we see her make. They have adventures where they are chased by a tiger and a crocodile but the scenes are playful and they always win out. For older children and adults, there are themes of memory and loss in the final scenes, but these are sensitively presented.
