Exercise your imagination with the magic of puppetry! We will explore a world of puppetry styles as we design and build colorful characters in many shapes and sizes. Together, we'll learn how to bring original stories and scenes to life on the puppet stage, and then put on a show for everyone to enjoy! A new theme will be introduced each week.
