Musical Theatre Marionettes
ABOUT THE CLASS
Choose your favorite musical theatre character and build a fully functional puppet version of that character! In advance of class, you will let us know about your character choice. Fred will shop for supplies and design a puppet specifically for you that you will build during class using materials provided in your class kit. The puppet will be marionette style with full articulation of joints and costumed!
