Merry Christmas

More Puppet Events

Dear Guild Members and Friends of Puppetry,

This just in from Joe:

The Puppets-in-the-Park event in Orem will be Saturday, June 30, from 10 am to 1 pm. It will be held at the University Mall, 575 East University Parkway, Orem, in the courtyard (north side of the mall).

Joe is looking for puppeteers to present shows during that time frame (from 10 am to 1 pm). There will be a raised stage set up in one of the three pavilions so you will definitely be in the shade. There will be power, speakers, and mics available. Just let Joe know what you need for your show. If you would like to participate in this Puppets-in-the-Park event, please contact Joe ASAP to get a time slot scheduled. Shows are all volunteer. You will be able to hand out cards or fliers with your contact info. Great exposure to what you do.

If you would like a booth space to sell puppet related items, you will need to bring your own table/s and canopy. There is NO fee to set up a booth.


Also—More puppet workshops happening at the Art Factory, 193 West 2100 South, SLC.
