Puppet Homecoming 2018

Puppet Homecoming 2018 – Sat. & Sun Sept. 22 & 23

Wow! What a great time we had at the Puppet Homecoming Festival in Brattleboro, VT with the Puppets in the Green Mountains presented by Sandglass Theater.

Thank you to all the organizers, performers, funders, workshop presenters, many volunteers, the PofA members who attended, the attendees from the surrounding community, theaters and classrooms, vendors, and commercial and private supporters. It sure does take a lot of people working together to make this happen. But it is worth every stimulating, provocative, and entertaining moment. Thank each and every one of you.
