Monster in the DQPT!

The DQPT has had Birds, Animals, Dragons and even Puppet Humans, but we never really had a “Monster” in the act before. Now we have recruited our first “Monster!” From the FAO Schwarz Muppet Whatnot Workshop, welcome Chuggs Monster! Hopefully, new videos featuring this new character will up around soon!


National Day of Puppetry in Chicago April 16th

The Chicagoland Puppetry Guild presents The National Day of Puppetry Celebration on Saturday April 16th, 2011.

This festival of puppetry will happen at The Irish American Heritage Center at 4626 N. Knox in Chicago, IL. You can get more information by calling them at 773-282-7035 ex. 19.

Doors open at 10:00 a.m. and they ask for a donation of $5 at the door to go to the Chicagoland Puppetry Guild. There will also be a Puppet Market over the course of the day.

Puppet Shows will include The Roz Puppets performing a rendition of “Rumpelstiltskin” and Joan Wittenberg with “Finn McCool.”

At Noon, I, David Quesal and some of my puppets, will teach a Puppet Manipulation Workshop. I intend on giving some pointers to help puppeteers bring their puppets to life. I encourage my pupils to bring their own puppets. I hope to see you there!
