Puppetfest 2015 at Buder Library

Puppeteers –amateurs, professionals, children and adults– will gather at Buder Library Saturday November 21 from 10 a.m. to noon.

At 10:30 Tom Bonham Puppet and Marionette Productions will perform “90 Second Puppet Stories” using over 45 puppets in just 45 minutes. He performs with rod, hand, and muppet(TM)-style puppets, and, with string puppets (marionettes). Tom has appeared on “America’s Got Talent” and tours through the Missouri Arts Council.

At 11:15 Michelle and Stan Gulick, founders of the Peppy Puppet Troupe, will present a puppet design workshop. Participants will take home their own Jabberwocky puppet.

Inexpensive puppets will also be available for purchase throughout the morning.  Puppetfest is organized by the St. Louis Puppet Guild with funding from the Regional Arts Council.

Take a look at all the fun participants had at past Puppetfests in 2014 and 2013!
