On May 15th, a group of local artists will present Puppet Shorts, a series of 5-10 minute puppet pieces. From shadow puppetry to suitcase theatre to large scale effigy puppets, come delight in a variety of aesthetics and storytelling techniques!
Thanks to a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, these local artists met regularly for the past three months to workshop and develop 5-10 minute puppet pieces as part of The Myrna Loy’s Puppet Salon.
Audiences for the Puppet Shorts will be split into small groups and will travel throughout the building to view the pieces.
The Myrna Loy Puppet Festival is supported by
National Endowment for the Arts
New England Foundation of the Arts’ National Theater Project, with lead funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation
Helena City of Service program
and by Ken Larson and Linda Adams in memory of parents Florence and Harry Larson, brother Stanley Larson and daughter Donielle Kahikina
