Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

If my dad were still alive I know what Dad would say.  Dad loved the library.  No matter where he traveled, he always made a point to stop at the local library.  It was an inspiration to him and Dad did so much research for his books in the library.

DePriest Puppets perform "World Tour!"

Event Date: 
Jun 19 2014 - 6:00pm

Join us, when DePriest Puppets presents “World Tour,” an entertaining look at marionette puppetry around the world, perfect for all ages. 

Every marionette is an original.  Each is individually crafted not only to visually represent a character, but also to perform with a unique personality – a personality that is inspired both visually by the artist who created the puppet and also by the artist who “pulls the strings” to make the puppet come to life. 

Take a journey with DePriest’s hand-crafted marionettes for an unexpected and unique adventure, then stay for a special “behind-the-scenes” workshop where you’ll learn about moving the marionettes and what it is like “back stage!”

This is a free program, open to the public. It is made possible through a generous grant from the Peru Target Store.
