“Officer Buckle and Gloria” Announcement

Hello all.  Yes I know that it’s been a while but I’ve been awaiting the contractual ink to dry before announcing some very exciting news!

In June, I’ll be starring in a brand new stage adaptation of the multi-million-selling children’s book “Officer Buckle and Gloria” by Peggy Rathmann.

Premièring in the last week of June at East Riddlesden Hall in Keighley and City Park in Bradford, West Yorkshire,  “Officer Buckle and Gloria” is a new commission produced by my long-term collaborators at Rough Magic Theatre.

It’s the story of an American cop who travels between schools to give dull and largely-ignored safety talks.  Things change when his bosses give him a Police dog called Gloria to accompany him,… a dog with a surprising talent for show-biz!

Gloria will be a full, Alsatian-sized dog puppet and is currently under construction in the Rough Magic workshop.  Boy is she cute!

I’ll be back with more details very soon, along with exciting news of other projects that are still on the QT.

Don’t be a stranger!

Tim Austin is an actor, writer and dramaturg based in North Yorkshire, UK.  Take a look around the site to find out more.

  1. Reblogged this on Puppet Lady and commented:
    At last we have been given the official go ahead and can, not only, tell you about it but start making the production! Pictures of the making of the “Gloria” puppet in progress to follow!

  2. Congratulations! Go for it girl! Looking forward to see the work in progress.

  3. Heya this is kind of of off topic but I was
    wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you
    have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise
    so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  4. Fantastic web site. Plenty of helpful information here.
    I’m sending it to some friends ans also sharing in delicious.

    And of course, thank you in your effort!
