Latest bunch of holiday programs!

This month, we hosted a series of PuppetOOdle school holiday programs at four of the ACT Libraries. We launched our brand new show, 'Jack and the Beanstalk' with live, original songs and music and brand new special puppets I'd crafted. Before the show, we warmed up the audience with sing-a-long songs and dancing and afterwards, the children created wonderful drawings of their favourite characters in the show. We also hosted two very exciting and fun workshops. A 'Paper Puppet' making workshop, where participants learnt how to make and manipulate a puppet from paper and a 'Puppet Manipulation' workshop, where participants learnt the basics of manipulating puppets - just like in the new Muppet Movie! They learnt professional techniques, such as lip-syncing, eye-focus, character voices and applying different emotions and movements. All programs were booked out weeks in advance and all who attended left with enormous smiles and enthusiasm for PuppetOOdle!
