Intro to Stage Puppeteering
Saturday, June 2nd

COST: $40 pre-reg/$50 day-of

In this fun, dynamic class, you'll learn the foundations of good stage puppetry - focus, physical commitment, and basic puppet operation. Combining puppeteering with theatre and improv exercises, we'll work on how to make your puppet come alive and connect with your audience. You'll get lots of hands-on time with professional arm-and-rod puppets plus a simple practice puppet to take home so you can keep working on your new skills.

at Joes Movement Emporium - Art Room
3309 Bunker Hill Rd, Mt Rainier, MD 20712

No puppet experience required.
Class recommended for ages 15 and up.
Please dress comfortably and be ready to move.

- 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?

- 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).
