About this event


We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Friday, August 13, 2021.

  • Experiment with many different puppet making techniques. Learn how to make different kinds of puppets using a variety of materials. Develop characters and write short scripts. Then, perform at the Puppet Playhouse each day. Improve your voice with breathing exercises and fun tongue twisters. Learn to control your body, move on a stage and take direction. Read and analyze a short play or script. Create characters of your own and play those parts well. And most of all? Have fun doing all these things.

Covid Precautions: The IC Parks and Rec is taking the necessary precautions while conducting each program in order to keep all participants as safe as possible. Precautions include but not limited to, sanitizing all equipment before use, taking temperature checks of participants and instructors, limiting class size to maintain proper distancing, requiring participants and instructors to wear masks, limiting class time to allow greater time for transition between classes, and providing hand sanitizer before and after activities.
