Puppet Pandemic

I will be performing next week in NYC as part of a fundraiser for the O'neill Puppetry Conference.

Please read the following note from the amazing Honey Goodenough (yes that is her real name).

Hopefully I will see you all there.

Dear You,

I would like to invite you to become a sponsor of an exciting new Alumni Scholarship to attend the National Puppetry Conference at the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center. The Fundraiser is called Puppet Pandemic:It's Infectious!

Puppet Pandemic: It's Infectious is showcase of works developed at the National Puppetry Conference. This collection explores the infectious nature of puppets. From marionettes to papier mache mayhem, artists redefine conventional notions of puppetry and breed new strains of creativity.

All profits from these performances will fund a new Alumni Scholarship to attend the National Puppetry Conference, in order to continue propagating provocative theatrical works.

I would like to invite you and all your friends to support this exciting new event. There are several ways to contribute. I am offering "Donor" status to anyone willing to donate funds from $20 to $99 dollars, "Sponsor" status to any contribution of $100 to $499, and "Star Sponsor" status with a contribute $500 or more. The contributors will have their name printed in the program as a thank you. All donations are tax deductible.

We are also conducting a raffle to help raise funds. We are accepting any puppet/puppetry related items items, such as books, puppets, tickets to shows, or services. Please consider this another fantastic way to contribute to the scholarship.

This will be an exciting event! We have gathered some outstanding pieces from throughout the years. Pam Arciero is attending and is planning to say a few words, and our hosts, Jim "Nappy " Napolitano and Leslie Carrara-Rudoph will help make the night a full evening of entertainment.


Like a pandemic, the passion for puppetry is spreading! The only cure-- a prescription of puppet performances!

Hope to see you!
