Beginning Stage Puppeteering 
In this fun, dynamic class, you'll learn the foundations of good stage puppetry - focus, physical commitment and basic puppet operation. Students learn the fundamentals of Muppet-style puppeteering through a combo of easy exercises, wicked challenges and practical scene work.

Over the 4 weeks, 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. Working in the realm of visible puppeteering, we'll explore both arm-and-rod and live hand puppets.

~ No puppet experience required.
~ Class recommended for ages 15 and up.
~ Please dress comfortably and be ready to move.
~ Class size limited to 8. Minimum enrollment: 3 students.

***FAQs***
- 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.
- 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).
