August 31, 10am - 1pm

Join Sandy Spieler for a fun, interactive workshop where you will learn a set of skills for bringing anything inanimate to life. Sandy is one of the founders of In the Heart of the Beast Theatre, and a long time puppeteer, director and movement coach. Bring in a puppet or object you want to work with or we’ll provide you with a variety of puppets from Open Eye and from Sandy’s box of puppets. This 3 hour workshop will focus on a foundation of physical acting, performance skills and emoting through puppets. All levels of puppeteers are encouraged to attend.
