Through the Mouth of a Puppet
For the past several years now I've helped coordinate a collaboration between InsideOut and the Detroit PuppetArt Theater. Every year I'm amazed by the stories that get told. Touching. Funny. Inventive. Talk about finding your voice as a writer. It's amazing how oftentimes the most interior students become almost other-than when they get to speak through the mouth of a puppet. It's always a sublime way to cap off the end of the school year.
This year the students at Hanstein Elementary will be performing their puppet plays on May 6th at Noon at the PuppetArt Theater located at 25 East Grand River in downtown Detroit. For more info call (313) 965-5332.
