Attention All Guild Members:
We are still planning to do a guild puppet show at our festival in April, so hope you elves are hard at work on your puppets. We have discussed how we can accomplish a show when we are so far away from each other, and came up with some parameters to better focus our creativity and keep all of the skits within a framework so that others with less time can be plugged in with the 4 months we have left.
All skits should…
- Be some sort of fairy tale, fractured or from a different point of view are options
- Take place in the woods. This will minimize any scenic needs.
- Total time of 15-20 minutes encompassing all skits with some transitional/improv material to tie everything together.
Please comment with any suggestions by January 12th. This will give us time to digest the ideas before our next meeting.
We propose that our next meeting be on Saturday, January 19th. This coincides with a puppet show at the SCERA. A good opportunity to see a show and then meet.

Last Saturday, guild members met at the SCERA to discuss some plans for our April puppetry festival. We started the meeting with a website overview and explanation by Jonathan Wilson. This section included some edits and design changes to our guild website, utahpuppetry.com.
Some of us in the guild have taken the challenge to include more and frequent updates so that you know what is happening puppet wise in Utah. If you have some news, an upcoming show, or a general update on something puppetry related, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
