We’ll be at the parade this June 2nd with Ithaca Is Puppets – a group of puppeteers, puppet-makers and puppet-lovers. You can participate by making your own puppet and sending us a pic/video to share on the Art Club site. We’ll be giving out the templates at the parade and you’ll be able to print your own at home, too. Check it out here: http://www.yourartclub.com/events/
“Yesterday our kids at Northside had some very special visitors –LilySilly Puppets came to do a show and workshop! The kids watched the performance, then got to take a look behind the scenes, and make some puppets of their own…THANK YOU to Lily and Matt — it was such a treat to have you. Thanks also to Ithaca College Big Brothers, Big Sisters for an outstanding volunteer turn out!”
Here are some photos from our recent Puppet Making Workshop in Freeville, NY. Thanks to Freeville Community Council and Freeville Elementary School. Many new puppets were created and we all had a lot of fun.
Alfonso’s Miniature Orchestra – A LilySilly Puppet Show
November 4 @ 4pm – Alfonso lives with his grandmother in Southern Spain and isn’t allowed to study music. When he falls in love with the guitar, his only help comes from a flamenco-dancing gypsy who teaches him the secrets of the instrument. A great way into classical music for kids. Live music by Matthew Ocone.
