Monday through Friday

Dive into the wildly creative and interdisciplinary world of puppetry arts! This summer, kids of all ages will have a unique opportunity to learn the secrets of crafting extraordinary characters and bringing them to life on stage and screen. Guided by a dream team of professional puppeteers, each day we will cover a different building and performance technique, from marionettes to mouth puppets, from hand puppets to shadows. We'll learn to see creative inspiration in found objects and materials, and to tell stories using movement and "visual vocabulary." Mini performances and fun creative challenges will take place throughout the week, along with mini performances by veteran puppeteers. No prior puppetry or theater experience is necessary. Join us for a fun and imaginative start to summer vacation!
