Description: Make your own rod puppet and bring it to life in this fun, hands-on workshop with John and Megan Regan, the delightful duo behind CactusHead Puppets. Inspired by the puppets in ''The Pied Piper of Hamelin,'' we'll learn how to use simple craft materials to create a rod puppet with moving arms. Kids can decorate their puppets to be any character or creature they wish! Then, we'll learn how to bring our creations to life with fun games and performance exercises. All materials are provided.

About the Instructors: CactusHead Puppets are known for their playful performance style and exuberant creativity. The West Springfield-based company was founded in 2010 by husband and wife team John and Megan Regan. Since then, they have created numerous shows based on favorite, familiar folktales and have toured throughout Western New England. John and Megan are both graduates of the University of Connecticut's Puppet Arts program. Megan is originally from the Kansas City area, where she worked with Paul Mesner Puppets. John is from Western Massachusetts, and is honored to be performing in the same libraries where he saw puppet shows growing up. Megan collects pop-up books, and John has a love for giant monster movies. Both John and Megan were interns at Puppet Showplace Theater, and they are excited to return to Boston to share their work as professional puppeteers!
