Puppet Pandemic this weekend!!! Oct 2nd and 3rd


Saturday Oct 2nd and Sunday Oct 3rd 
7:30pm & 9:30pm
This showcase of puppetry pieces explore the contagious nature of puppets. From marionettes to paper mache mayhem, artists redefine conventional notions of puppetry and breed new strains of creativity and present them to an audience of willing test subjects.

These works were developed at the National Puppetry Conference. All profits from this showcase will fund The Alumni Scholarship to attend The National Puppetry Conference, so we can continue to explore the infectious nature of puppets. 

Hosted by: Jim "Nappy" Napolitano of Nappy's Puppets
The Tank Theater

345 W. 45th Street (between 8th and 9th ave)

Tickets:
$10 in advance -http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/124971
$15 cash at the door 

The Puppet Pandemic is spreading!
The only cure - a dose of puppet performances.

I will be puppeteering in all four performances this weekend. This is a show not to be missed. Trust me!

Workshop was a success!!!

Thank you to everyone who came to our workshop this weekend. It was so nice to meet you all.

For everyone who was not there. 19 people signed up for the workshop. The class started with basic lip-synch technique. We then moved to some monitor work. We ended the 1.5 hour workshop with some group lip-synch to some popular songs.

Fun was had by all.

If you are interested in learning more about TV style puppetry send us a message. We would be happy to teach an intro class for you.

Good luck trying to figure out how the head turns. I built it and I don't even fully understand it.
