Performances!!!



So we have been busy performing at puppet slams.

We performed on Jan 17th at the Brookline Puppet Showplace. It was a fantastic night of great puppetry. We performed a Physical comedy act that was very well received. Which was great cause we weren't sure at all how it would do with a live audience. It was nice to see some familiar faces performing again at the showplace. It was also nice to meet some new people as always.

We also performed last night at the Connecticut Guild Puppet Slam. This was a great night there were 8 acts in all covered a wide range of puppetry. It was great to meet some more new people in the puppetry world. It was also fantastic to catch up with some old friends of puppetry that we have met from past slams and from festivals. The puppetry world really does feel like one huge extended family sometimes. The evening was hosted by Nappy from Nappy puppets along with the all star judges panel which included none other than Martin Robinson, Leslie Carrara-Rudolph, and Pam Arciero. They also brought along their counterparts Telly Monster, Lolly, and Grundgetta. Congrats goes out to Carole Simms who won the audience cash prize with her peacock performance.

After all the performances we got a chance to talk to the judges a little more and even get a photo with them. I would also like to add a huge thank you to Leslie for all the great feedback on our performance.

It was fun a night. But, it is always a fun night when puppets are involved.

Love your blog! I'm just getting into it though, so forgive a "newbie" question. Are the above picture people acquaintances and people with whom you performed?

Hey Steve,

Thanks for stopping by. I love your show. The back row is my crew. The front half are all muppeteers. But, I'm sure you already know that. The muppeteers were at the puppet slam we were performing at as a judges panel.
