Puppeteers of America Regional Puppet Festival: Dick Myer's Beauty and the Beast
Sunday, July 27th |11am-noon
In 1969, puppeteer Dick Myers premiered this production, with his one-of-a-kind puppets, on the stage of the DIA. In 2014 this production will again return to the DIA after a 40 year hiatus, painstakingly revived using the original objects Myers crafted decades ago. With performance by Seth Shaffer and direction by Bart Roccoberton from the University of Connecticut Puppet Arts Program, this event will wrap up the 2014 Great Lakes Regional Puppetry Festival with an experience not to be missed.
