INTERMEDIATE PUPPETRY - "Finding Your Puppet's Character" 1-3pm, Sunday, October 27th

In this fun, intermediate puppeteering class, you'll learn the basics of characterization - voice, physicality and emotion - and how to apply them to your puppet. You'll get tons of tips for making character choices and see what a big impact they can have on your puppet's performance.
