Our Children’s Program for the week is PuppeTree from 10:30-11:30 am on Wednesday (August 3rd).
The PuppeTree’s mission is to promote an appreciation of the performing arts, with an emphasis on children’s theater and puppets, among diverse audiences. These audiences include-but are not limited to-school age children, special needs children, at-risk youth, senior citizens and intergenerational groups, other adults and underserved communities. Through Artist-in-Residence programs, The PuppeTree, which is registered as a Juried Artist with the Vermont Arts Council, creates the opportunity for these groups to become active participants in all aspects of theater arts. The PuppeTree enlists members of the audience to become performers and puppeteers. They are also involved in script development, building the scenery and puppets. We refer to this unique method of enlisting audiences in the dynamics of a production by saying “YOUR GROUP IS THE TROUPE “™.
