Z Puppets Rosenschnoz June 25-29

Puppet Workshops! Ages 7 to 12

June 25-29 features special puppet workshops from Z Puppets Rosenschnoz of Minneapolis!

The weeklong camp will host two groups. In the morning youth will learn shadow puppetry.

In the afternoon, youth and their adult  companions will learn blacklight puppetry. The afternoon session will include accommodations for youth with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), although it will be open to youth of all abilities. Many people with ASD  find blacklight soothing.

At the culmination of the weeklong camp, both groups  will perform along side the professional artists as
the Sailor Chorus in one sensory-friendly  performance of Monkey Mind Pirates, a stage performance on Friday, June 29 at 7 pm.  Youth emerge from camp with puppets they created as well as skills in mindfulness that  will fuel and sustain the artistic process  throughout their lives.

Registration fee is $40 before June 22
