Puppetry is an incredible tool to bring characters to life in a dynamic, immersive way. In this panel, hear from puppeteers from incredible shows such as Life of Pi, The Lion King, Frozen on Broadway, and Avenue Q. Our panel focuses on three aspects of puppetry: 1) puppet fabrication, 2) puppetry performance, and 3) career development within puppetry. Bringing your own puppet is encouraged!
