Toni Smith

Snuff Puppet Team

I Started working with Snuff Puppets in 2009, I think this is the sentence that got me the job – “So you have never had a permanent Production Manager Before?  So basically a monkey could do the job and you would think it was great.”

I worked as the Production and Tour Manager for nearly 4 years and also got involved as a performer, puppetmaker (mostly fixer), lighting designer and anything that needed to be done (just the fun stuff).  I traveled to China for the World Expo in Shanghai, Attended the Hi Seoul and Aarhus Festivals twice, took roaming acts to Sweden, Denmark, Korea, Taiwan, India, Chile, New Zealand, Mackay and others that I cant think of now.  Had the HUGE pleasure of being involved in PPPs in India, Denmark, Taiwan, Korea and Australia.  Priced and almost booked about 1 million flights, applied for countless visas and freighted ridiculously large boxes from one end of the world to the other.
