Raccoon Tales: Interpreting a Classic Show, with Brad Shur and Paul Vincent Davis

''Raccoon Tales'' features three humorous vignettes inspired by Native American just-so stories, brought to life with beautiful hand puppets and scenery. Originally created by Paul Vincent Davis, it is now performed by Brad Shur, who worked closely with Paul in adapting the show. These two artists will share their experience of working on the show, and talk about the challenges of passing it from one puppeteer to another. Brad will be performing the show all weekend at Puppet Showplace.

There will be Show and Tell, and a potluck dinner during the break, so please bring something to share. We will also talk about the upcoming puppetry festivals and other fun events. Hope to see you there!

Contact John Lechner for more information.

The Boston Area Guild of Puppetry is a chartered guild of the Puppeteers of America. We are a collection of puppeteers and puppet enthusiasts ranging from professional performers and artists to educators and hobbyists, located throughout upper New England. We hold meetings several times a year at the Puppet Showplace Theatre, to share knowledge and inspiration, and to offer support to other puppeteers.

We offer workshops, consultations and support for those interested in puppetry. We have members who specialize in custom-made puppets or offer performances at venues such as schools, community centers, and birthday parties. Click here to learn more about BAGOP or download a Membership Form.
