Camp is Almost Here!


We are so excited for camp, we just had to tell you about it!  We've been working with the Brookline Rec Department to make sure that everything is all set and ready to go next week for campers.  Here's a few things you should know about next week:

Store Will Be Temporarily Closed - We'll be using our lobby and theatre space for the camp, and the store will be closed during that that time.  We repeat: the store will be closed next week.  Do not despair though, we're still open THIS week, and our regular store hours will resume on the August 28th!

Performance Schedule - Also, although we do normally run shows on weekdays, next week there will be only two performances on Sat of Sir George and the Dragon by Pumpernickel Puppets, with no shows on Wed, Thurs, or Fri. Call ahead and be sure to reserve tickets for Saturday! BUY TICKETS

In this one-week summer camp students will explore the manipulation techniques used to bring different styles of puppets to life. In a typical day, students will spend a morning session working with a professional performer to learn tools for expressing themselves ranging from voice acting to storytelling to hand puppet techniques and team puppetry. In the afternoons, students will devise, rehearse, and perform an original play, using the puppetry and performance skills they have acquired. In addition to puppetry activities, campers also will enjoy fun recreational outings led by counselors from the Brookline Recreation Department.
