This year, our fabulous Teaching Artists, Kevin Casey and Ilgaz Ulusoy Casey, toured their original shadow puppet show and workshop to every single Helena School District Kindergarten classroom. That’s 28 classrooms across 11 schools, and over 400 inspired young puppeteers! We loved hearing all the enthusiastic audience responses, and the positive feedback from teachers.
“SO much laughter.”
“Talking about friendships and relationships is a key part of kindergarten.”
“Immediately after the show my students began creating their own shows. It was really fun to watch them use their play time to do it.”
“Wow, that was a REAL puppet show.”
Can we do a puppet show?
Can we tell a story?
Thank you to the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation for supporting this impactful project!
