Join Puppeteers of Puget Sound for our spring meeting! Our special guest, Ann Powell of Puppetmongers Theatre, will talk about Toy Theatre using a variety of examples, from a Victorian paper theatre to several made by Puppetmongers and students. Plus she’ll show us the basics of how to turn a boring cardboard box into a toy theatre. After the presentation, we’ll chat and do some guild business.
PLEASE NOTE: This meeting will be password protected. You must RSVP to attend and will receive the meeting link via email at least 48 hours before the meeting.
