MEET TINY TIM

Tiny Tim CratchitIt was with great joy THEATRE THREE reopened this past summer. The world was not the
one we had left in 2019, and we knew there would be many challenges. Our concern is always for the safety of our cast, staff, and patrons. Everyone involved with our productions is fully
vaccinated. A Christmas Carol is the heart of our season. The main issue would be the casting of our young company and, in particular, Tiny Tim. When we realized that we would not be able to cast children under twelve, we had to solve this dilemma. We would like you to meet our Tiny Tim. This puppet was designed and constructed by Austin Michael Costello, a gifted creator of puppetry. After hours of consultation with Austin, we realized that our Tiny Tim must be small and easily transferred from one actor to another. The goal was to create a theatrical Tim rather than a realistic being. Our Tiny Tim is 36 inches tall and made of wood, fabric, and a malleable plastic, Wonderflex. His clothing was handmade to fit his slight frame. The assembly took weeks of delicate work, during which Austin provided us pictures and video of the progress. For his voice, we have pre-recorded a young actor. We are very grateful to Finn Thomas for lending us his talent for this final piece. Rehearsals were spent learning tthe best ways to animate our Tiny Tim. Gently passing him hand-to-hand, understanding that each movement and gesture had a meaning. Even more, it became about making him real for us, a true part of the Cratchit family. In short, he was no longer a puppet. He was Tiny Tim. With time, patience, and effort, Tiny Tim has become an integral part of A Christmas Carol of 2021. With all roads, there are questions, frustrations, and rewards. Thank you for taking this journey with us.
