Polar Bear Puppet

The Bear may not be visiting the theatre anymore, but you can make your very own polar puppet! Follow the instructions below to find out how…


What you’ll need to make your polar bear puppet:

– Polar bear puppet printable pattern – download here (COMING SOON) – or draw your own like we did!
– White card or paper
– Stick on googly eyes (if you have some)
– Black pom pom (also if you have one to hand)
– Marker pen
– Glue or tape
– Scissors


Instructions:

1. Print the polar bear puppet template or copy and draw the shapes out yourself. You’ll need a ruler and pencil for this. (Don’t worry, the bear can be as big or as small as you like!)

 

2. Cut out all the puppet pieces.

 

3. Take the long body piece and fold it along the line. Glue it together to make a flat bottomed arch. This will be your polar bear puppet’s body.

 

4. Fold the four polar bear legs like you would if you were making a fan and use a marker pen to add detail to the paws.

 

5. Glue the four legs onto the bottom of the body. Make sure the paws are all facing the same way.

 

6. Glue the tail onto the back of the polar bear.

 

7. Add detail to the ears and stick them onto the head of the bear. Now it’s time make your polar bears face, if you have googly eyes and a pom pom for the nose, add them now.

 

8. Glue the polar bear’s head onto the body at the front. Your polar puppet is now complete!


All that’s left to do now is give him/her a name! Make sure to share your puppet designs with us via our FacebookTwitter or Instagram. We can’t wait to see your polar puppets!

Please see here for any updates regarding building closure, event cancellations, postponed shows, and what to do next.
Whilst many public performances have been postponed due to the pandemic, we want to keep our venue flourishing and endeavour to become a new home to many of Coventry's community and social groups.
Immerse yourself in a virtual theatre performance, see everything around you from floor to ceiling. Get the equipment (all you will need to provide is a smartphone) and you're ready.
The team at The Albany Theatre in Coventry is elated to have received the news today (12/10/2020) that they have secured a £250k grant from the Government’s £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund. Without the funding, The Albany would have been forced to close at the end of the week, but thanks to the hard work and dedication of all at the theatre, they can now look forward with confidence.
The Albany is pleased to announce that Zarah Sultana, Coventry South’s new MP, has joined the Board of the Charitable Trust that manages Coventry’s Albany Theatre and Studio on behalf of the community.
"We are ready to respond with creativity and enthusiasm as soon as we know it is safe to re-open... Rest assured, as soon as we have any news about The Albany we will let you know, we are ready to play our part in the re-emergence of live theatre."
