Puppetry Residency

“The Most Amazing Time!”

“They were fun!  I liked their personalities!”

“It was a blast!”

These are what some of the students had to say about the puppet residency with Mrs. Brown and Mrs. Ritchie.  Our primary students absolutely loved working with the puppets.  It was a very full week, with storytelling, learning how to convey movement and emotion, being introduced to performance techniques, seeing how to use props, and being introduced to the magical shadow puppets.

Many thanks to Mrs. Brown and Mrs. Ritchie for sharing their knowledge and love of puppets with our students.   Thank you, too, Bert Ambrose PAC and SD 60 for your support of the residency.
