Puppeteers of Puget Sound Summer Picnic!

Join us as the Pacific NW Regional Director and PoPS President co-host a summer grilling event. The Seattle Children’s Theatre has graciously donated the use of their terrace so the guild may gather, socialize, and EAT. Following a reception, Annett Mateo will host a tour of her puppet workshop:

“After building for SCT for sixteen seasons there are a lot of puppets hanging around the theatre, I’ll take you on a tour of all the backstage areas and we’ll take an up-close look at many of the puppets there.”

Food and beverage will be provided and you are encouraged to bring a potluck dish of your own to add to the table.

6pm – Doors and Reception
7pm – Puppet tour
8pm – Grilling and Mingle
9:45pm – Event closes down

RSVP with Dustin (dustinisneat@gmail.com) or Jean (info@thistletheatre.org) by May 28th so we have an accurate count for food.

Cost:
Guild members – Free!
Children under 15 – Free!
Adults (15+) who are not members – $5

Please feel free to invite family or a date.

This event is Rain or Shine (indoor area reserved for inclement weather).

How to enter SCT:

Please use the door closest to the Pacific Science center, it faces the Mural Amphitheatre. There is a large bronze whale tail sculpture in a little garden right by it. We will be manning that door until 6:30pm. You can text/call Dustin at 206.419.0823 if you arrive outside of that window to be let in.

We look forward to seeing you there and want to thank you for your support of the guild.
