In the 4th and final instalment of our backstage feature on Running Wild, Joshua Fernandes, Ava Potter and Tyler Osborne talk about sharing the stage with Oona the elephant. Also, with exclusive footage from the production, see Running Wild come to life on the stage, and hear what audiences are saying about the show.
Hear more about the Young People’s Ensemble from Directors Timothy Sheader and Dale Rooks, A co-production with Chichester Festival Theatre, we also meet original Chichester cast members Romina Hytten and Fred Davis, who make their professional puppeteering debuts in the Open Air Theatre’s production.
In Episode 2 we chat with the masters of puppetry, Finn Caldwell and Toby Olié from Gyre & Gimble, and Leonie Lawrence from the Zoological Society of London talks about the darker side of the story: the threats to wildlife in Indonesia and the conservation work ZSL does in the field.
