Our Spring Puppet Forum Series will end on Wednesday, May 9th at 7:30, with a rare showing of Handmade Puppet Dreams, Volume 5, at the Ballard Institute on UConn’s Depot Campus.  In Heather Henson’s new collection of fourteen (count’em!) independent puppet shorts by an international array of young filmmakers and puppeteers, you will see an astounding range of  expression and a variety of fascinating and innovative stories and puppet techniques.  This will be the first showing of Handmade Puppet Dreams, Volume 5 in northern Connecticut!

The museum’s new exhibitions, Red Gate: Pauline Benton and Chinese Shadow Theater, and Frank Ballard: Roots and Branches, will also be open for your viewing pleasure before and after the film.

Directions to the Ballard Institute here.
