A Midsummer Night’s Dream–with puppets

Dear Friends of Puppetry,

I was able to attend the final dress rehearsal for the production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream presented in the Nelke Theater in the Harris Fine Arts Center on the BYU campus last Saturday. It was AWESOME to say the least. Guild member Nat Reed built all of the puppets for this production and he did an amazing job. He also directed the production.

It will run through this Saturday and tickets are nominal ($6). The show starts at 7 pm, and the Nelke Theater is in the basement of the Harris Fine Arts Center. There is free parking very close.

This is a MUST see even if you don’t totally understand Shakespeare. The cast is vibrant and enthusiastic and right on with dialect and presentation. They did an amazing job. See attached pictures.

Thanks for your support of puppetry.

Laughing Cactus Puppet Workshop November 14 & 15

Puppet Workshop Form


Guild Members and Friends of Puppetry,

The Salt Lake City “Everything Halloween” puppet festival was so much fun. If you missed it and you’re feeling sad about it, you have one more chance. . .

The Southern Branch located in St. George (as our beautiful northern Utah leaves fall and the weather turns cold and stormy, think warm and sunshine) will be presenting their “Laughing Cactus” puppet workshop at the DiFiore Center, 307 North Main, St. George, UT 84770. The fun begins with the Potpourri Puppet Party on November 14 at 7 pm. Humans must be accompanied by a puppet to get into this fun event.

Puppet making and manipulating classes begin Saturday morning, November 15 at 9:30 am with registration starting at 8:30 am. Please check out the class line-up and location information on the two documents attached to this notice.

Lorie Hawley and Sharon Evans are heading up this fun event; and if you know these two, you know you you’re in for a good time and lots of laughs.

Hope to see many of you there. After all, it’s only about 4 hours from Salt Lake to St. George.
