We are aware that COVID-19 is affecting the scheduling of events and other gatherings throughout our community.

We encourage you to check with event organizers and venues regarding the status of any event you are looking to attend. Thank you.
Now that we are into February, we would, once again, like to invite everyone to the rebirth of the Puppetry Guild of Northeastern Ohio! The organization, which was founded in 1975 as the local branch of “Puppeteers of America”, was one of the strongest puppetry groups in the United States. Dormant for the last several years, the Puppetry Guild of Northeastern Ohio is gearing up for its next event of 2017 and we would love to see you there!
We are looking to rebuild the organization and to create a wonderfully creative and educational support group for everyone that has an interest in the art of puppetry! From professional performers, to beginners, puppet collectors and anyone who would love to learn more about puppetry, all are welcome.
Puppeteers, Theater Professionals, Students, Collectors, & Everyone that has an interest in the art of puppetry!
Sunday February 19, 2017
2:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Tailspinner Childrens Theatre – 5209 Detroit Ave. Cleveland, Ohio
Alison Garrigan will be our host and will give us some insight about her theater and their use of puppetry in their productions.
We will also be discussing ideas for our “World Day of Puppetry” event in April. So, we have a lot of things to do!
What to bring:
1 – A favorite puppet, book, or puppet-related item for discussion & “Show & Tell”
2 – A puppet-related item that you want to get rid of for our “Puppet Swap” (if you have one)
3 – An open mind, open heart and love of all things puppetry
4 – Bring a friend, student or anyone that would love to learn more about the art of puppetry
Please feel free to share this invitation with students, friends and anyone that you know, who is a puppeteer, puppet enthusiast, collector, or just plain old interested in the art of puppetry!
