LIVE ANIMATION FUN WITH STUFFIES
Puppeteers can lay their hands on almost anything  or inside of almost anything  and give that thing the illusion of life, of breath, of feelings, and of course the illusion of thought.  Learn some of the basics of live animation using the friendliest and most easily found puppets of all time  the good old fashioned stuffed animal.

Bring your own teddy bears  or teddy rabbits, teddy dragons, teddy whateveryouwants  and puppeteer Mike Petersen will help you hone your tabletop puppetry chops. Now your stuffies will walk, talk, think, act and react, create stories, and perform poetry by practicing the essential elements of puppetry  with precision, simplicity, clarity, and fun!

Instructor Mike Petersens career began on Jim Hensons Fraggle Rock in 1984. He has since performed across the country and around the world with such companies as Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia, the Edinburgh Puppet Company, Polands Teatr Arlekin, and Theatre Beyond Words. Film and television credits include Fraggle Rock, Labyrinth, Toopy & Binoo Vroom Vroom Zoom, and the award-winning pre-school series The Mighty Jungle. Mike created and performed in As You Puppet at YPT, and he is a proud member of the Dora Award winning ensemble performing in Old Man and the River with Theatre Direct.

As a teacher of puppetry Mike has worked alongside Graham Whitehead at Mermaid Theatre, Allen MacInnis at YPT, Lynda Hill at Theatre Direct, Seanna Kennedy and Bruce Dow at Lower Ossington Theatre, and Christine Brubaker, director of the world premier of Wilde Tales at Shaw Festival. He has developed puppetry training curriculums for Sheridan College, Humber College, Theatre New Brunswick, and The Toronto School of Puppetry
