History

Notes

The Tintookies, from an Aboriginal word meaning 'little people who come from the sandhills', was an elaborate marionette musical first staged by creator Peter Scriven at the Elizabethan Theatre in Sydney in 1956. After the success of this production, Tintookie became the generic name for any of the puppets used by the Marionette Theatre of Australia, formed by Scriven under the auspices of the Elizabethan Theatre Trust in 1965. The Theatre produced innovative large-scale puppet shows with an overtly Australian content forchildren for more than 20 years, including the landmark productions 'Little Fella Bindi' (1958) and Norman Lindsay's 'The Magic Pudding' (1960).

This LP contains music from the productions: 'The Tintookies', 'Little Fella Bindi', 'The Explorers' and 'Tintookies 2000'.
Donated by Peter Scriven to the Sydney Opera House.
