Class Experience

Puppetry is an integral part of theater all the way from children's theater up to major musicals and plays. Learning to puppeteer reinforces acting skills, connects mind and body, and encourages an actor to go beyond themselves to bring something normally inanimate to life! Learn the basics of puppetry with us and practice your skills by creating your own original puppet and putting all our puppet characters into a play to perform and record during our final class!
