On November 16th, The Puppet Guild of Greater St. Louis returned to Buder Branch for its annual Puppetfest. Papa & Jackie Wright started the show by allowing children to come up and try moving puppets.
Papa and Jacquelyn Wright’s Storytime Puppets performed “Three Billy Goats Gruff Meet the Mysterious Creature.” The Mysterious Creature was looking for something besides goats to eat, and sampled a few childrens’ fingers!
Children had the opportunity to make troll puppets during a workshop led by Dan Romano.
To end Puppetfest 2013, Michelle Myers O’Donnell Gulick and Stan Gulick’s Peppy Puppet Troupe performed a (nonscary) version of “Little Red Riding Hood” (which had a happy ending for everybody!)
