Puppetry Workshop: Extra-Curricular Speech and Drama

With great delight, we have been visiting Citipointe Christian College Carindale annually to run our puppetry performance workshop as part of their Extra-Curricular Speech and Drama classes.

We teach the basic techniques that bring Muppet-style puppet characters to life in an interactive workshop.

Students get a chance to practice puppetry techniques using real puppets.
