It's pretty well established that the Center for Puppetry Arts is a real treasure. Here's a link to their "About Us" webpage to give you an overview of some of the things they do.
I will be at the Center at 10am this morning to see Jon Ludwig's Dinosaurs and then I'm gonna' stick around and make a dinosaur puppet of my own. Wednesday evening I'm attending the
The Ghastly Dreadfuls II: Handbook of Practical Hauntings and Other Phantasmagoria in preparation for their October 15 Opening.
Both of these shows run into November and I'll follow up with more info later.
