Mary Canary and a few of her puppet pals will start out the workshop behind the puppet stage performing a short set. The topics above will then be covered. The short set and topics comprise of about 30 minutes.  The children will then have an opportunity to try their hand at puppetry.  Only 2 kids at a time will be allowed behind the puppet stage. The purpose of these workshops is to get as many kids interested in puppetry as possible in order to keep the art alive.  Children will have an opportunity to learn the basics, acquire a new skill, and have a ball to boot! A small group of 12 children would provide an opportunity for each child to participate that wants to. Bigger groups would be fine as well, however, not everybody would get a chance to try their hand at it.
