The project combined life size puppets, mask and shadow theatre to dramatise and retell tales of old. Tees Tales culminated in two performances in December 2013.
The young people taking part were members of the Kando Youth Theatre,  ages ranging from 11 to 13 years.

During the summer months they  worked hard adapting local tales, developing characters and improvising scenarios to be used in the performance.
