  • Ongoing: until Tuesday, March 18, 2014
  • Tuesday: 6:30pm
  • Where: 32 Station St., Brookline MA 02445
  • Cost: $150 - $175 buy tickets
  • Age limit: All ages

This class will focus on the proper manipulation of Muppet-style hand and rod puppets such as those featured on Sesame Street, The Muppet Show, and Avenue Q. Professional puppeteers know how to make these characters appear as living, breathing beings with their own thoughts, desires, and motivations. After learning the basics (breathing, lip-synch, focus, and body position), your hand will start to have a mind of its own!

Participants will also cover essentials such as character interpretation, rhythm and timing, storytelling, puppet-assisting , working with props, creating a puppet film, improv and comedy, television monitor technique, and puppet/actor interactions. This is an ideal class for actors, comedians, die-hard Muppet fans, dancers, animators, or anyone interested in learning puppetry.
