PuppetPalooza 2018

Puppet Mid Menu

Call for puppeters to join our 2018 series. 

The Somerville Arts Council is looking to expand the Puppet Palooza by adding a professional development component in addition to a performance.

We are seeking four performers (or companies) to create new work designed for outdoor settings.  Accepted companies will have the opportunity to work with Jana Zeller, a highly accomplished puppeteer from Sandglass Theater in Vermont. Each company will participate in (3) three-hour workshops this Spring and Summer. Then in September 2018, the final work will be presented to the public.

Accepted applicants must be available for the first workshop on April 9.

PuppetPalooza is a collaboration between the Somerville Arts Council and East Somerville Main Streets as part of the This is East programming.    We are excited to bring the art of puppetry to unexpected places.
