Event

Luck of the Puppets
Puppet Happening enters its second year with a festival night of performance and spectacle at Future Tenant Gallery.  This event features a dynamic new format, a carnival atmosphere where puppet shows happen spontaneously in a mix of pageantry, live music and hands-on activities.  The lineup of events begins at 6 pm and ends at 11 pm.

Shows and spectacle will range from the wild and racy, to the edgy and critical.  Tom Sarver and Mike Cuccaro are the hosts. The Society for the Advancement of Miniature Curiosa unveils Puppet Photo Booth.  Cirque da so lame makes their Pittsburgh debut.  Enjoy live music by the Funkys.  Check out a "Puppet Peep Show," or "Shadow Puppet Infomercial." Make your "Puppet Mate" or get married by a puppet! Check out Dave English and Paul O'Brien's "Big N' Scratchy," a critical look at scratch-off lottery tickets.

This is an 18 and over event.  For more information, check out the Puppet Happening website, www.puppethappening.com

Puppet Happening, Pittsburgh's new puppet festival and presenting organization, aims to strengthen the Pittsburgh puppeteer community by providing a support structure for puppetry performance. By promoting experimentation through collaborations with visual and performing artists of other disciplines, we aim to grow the audience for puppetry in the Pittsburgh region. We aim to establish a citywide, year-round presence that challenges the definition of puppetry, promotes diversity, explores a dynamic scope of topics, and links Pittsburgh with the national puppetry scene.

Funding for Puppet Happening is provided by the A.W. Mellon Educational and Charitable Trust Fund of The Pittsburgh Foundation. Puppet Photo Booth is made possible through a grant from Awesome Pittsburgh.
