This is a broad introduction to the basics of manipulating a puppet, developing a voice and character, working with a monitor, and creating and performing simple interactions with other puppets.
I bring approximately ten highly qualified television puppets: frogs, demons, aliens, socks and chickens, who become any personality. Using a monitor to see your puppet gives you the unique opportunity to be the actor and director at the same time. I impart as much knowledge as I can so that aspiring puppeteers are quickly able to improvise and have fun performing with puppets.
