BEGINNING PUPPETRY
1-3pm, Sunday, October 20th

In this fun, dynamic class, you’ll learn the foundations of good stage puppetry – focus, physical commitment and basic puppet operation. We’ll focus on how to make your puppet seem alive and connect with the audience. You’ll get lots of hands-on time with professional arm-and-rod puppets plus a simple practice puppet to take home so you can keep working on your skills.

(No puppet experience required.)

INTERMEDIATE PUPPETRY – “Finding Your Puppet’s Character”
1-3pm, Sunday, October 27th

You know how to make your puppet talk, but what does she sound like?
You can make him move, but where is he going? And how does he get there?

In this fun, intermediate puppeteering class, you’ll learn the basics of characterization – voice, physicality and emotion – and how to apply them to your puppet. You’ll get tons of tips for making character choices and see what a big impact they can have on your puppet’s performance.

(Beginning Puppetry class or equivalent puppet experience recommended.)
