Puppeteers can bring entire worlds to life using just the tips of their fingers. Want to know their secrets? Now is your chance! In this new one-week summer camp students will explore the manipulation techniques used to bring different styles of puppets to life. In a typical day, students will spend a morning session working with a professional performer (actors and puppeteers) to learn tools for expressing themselves ranging from voice acting to storytelling to hand puppet techniques and team puppetry. In the afternoons, students will devise, rehearse, and perform an original play, using the puppetry and performance skills they have acquired. In addition to puppetry activities, campers also will enjoy fun recreational outings led by counselors from the Brookline Recreation Department.
