The adventure is booked!

A few weeks ago, I received an email confirming that I received a scholarship to attend a MidWest PuppetFest in the Mid West of America in July this year. An AMAZING opportunity!

After a quick google search I realised there were many other puppet festivals happening all over the country around that time and plans started hatching of the "Ultimate Puppetry Adventure TOUR"! :-)

After some careful planning and help from a great travel agent at STA (Mick Tattam), this itinerary emerged and was booked:

July 1st: Fly to Los Angeles
July 1-5: Holiday adventures in L.A. and touring film sets, etc.
July 5-13: Kansas City and Trenton Missouri: PuppetFest MidWest
July 13-14: Atlanta, Georgia: Center for Puppetry Arts
July 14-21: Wilmington, North Carolina: Port City Puppet Festival
July 21-27: Miami, Florida: Holiday adventures / meeting puppeteer mentor Paul Louis Muller
July 27: Fly back home to Australia....

WOOO! Only two months to go!!!
