A Shoestring parade will make any festival, fair, community event or holiday a true celebration. With the assistance of volunteers from your organization or community, who will participate as puppeteers, this ready-made production includes:
- larger-than-life, giant puppets,
- giant colorful characters,
- dancing dragons; and an
- insatiable carnival spirit.
The parade is completed with plenty of drums, stiltwalkers, colorful banners and costumes for the occasion. All together, this makes for a fun and zanny extravaganza.
The multifaceted aspects of puppetry are best explored through the vast array of workshops that are offered by Nance Parker, Director of the Shoestring Theater.
Nance has extensive experience using puppetry and theater as an educational tool. Workshops participants will learn the art of puppetry through hands-on activities. Learn theater arts, stiltdancing and the impetus behind community theater in an enjoyable environment. Workshops are available for all ages and interest groups and can range from one day intensive courses to extended residences.
