RESIDENCIES

A residency is an extended stay with a sponsor, 1-5 days usually. During this time, students/participants can build puppets, practice puppetry skills, or rehearse and present a performance. Goals and activities are worked out with the sponsors. Bob's goal is to provide an experience with puppet theater that is both enjoyable and educatioinal.Click the photo to get a better look at the sixth graders from Yellowstone Park School who performed "The Wizard of Oz" with Bob's puppets in 2004.

BIRTHDAYS
