Back in February our UConn Winter Puppet Slam was thwarted by snow. Thankfully, Spring is here and the event–now the UConn Spring Puppet Slam is back on for Friday May 3rd at 8pm.
The show will take place at a new location: the Palace Theater in Stafford, Connecticut, a few miles from the UConn Main Campus. Tickets are $5. You can buy them in advance here.
Our UConn Spring Puppet Slam performers will include Great Small Works, performing their toy theater spectacle Living Newspaper; Jana Zeller, performing a hand-puppet excerpt from her Spybird Theater production Eye of the Storm; Jim Napolitano presenting a dynamic shadow theater show; and Puppet Arts students Anna Fitzgerald, Carianne Hoff, Seth Shaffer, Dana Samborski, and Sarah Nolen all presenting new works for puppet and mask theater. Join us for this exciting event!

This event is supported by a generous grant from the Puppet Slam Network.
