Someone just stuck a puppet on your hand. Now what do you do?!?
In this fun, dynamic class, you'll learn the foundations of good stage puppetry - focus, physical commitment and basic puppet operation. We'll focus on how to make your puppet seem alive and connect with the audience. You'll get lots of hands-on time with professional puppets plus a simple practice puppet to take home so you can keep working on your skills.
No puppet experience required.
Class recommended for ages 15 and up.
Class size limited to 15.
Rachel has been performing whatever theatrical discipline she can get her hands on since the age of 13 - mime, musical theater, scripted drama and comedy, improv and puppetry. The twisted mind behind the hit show "MANOS - The Hands of Felt" and owner of Vox Fabuli Puppets, Rachel has been puppeteering on various Seattle stages since 2008.
- Do I have to bring my own puppet?
No. There will be plenty o' puppets provided to play with. However, if you have your own arm and rod puppet friend, you are absolutely welcome to bring them to class with you.
- Will we be building puppets in this class?
No. Nonononono. That takes waaay longer than 2 hours.
- Do I have to be good at funny voices?
Nope. We'll be focusing on physical work in this class, so you can puppeteer using whatever voice is comfy (funny voice, normal voice, super serious voice, etc).
