Rehearsals have been culminating in a fever pitch as AMT prepares for the April 8th opening of its spring musical: “Avenue Q”! What better way to celebrate a puppet musical than with World Puppetry Day! Our actors have been having a blast with the artistry that goes along with puppet work and they have a new found respect for the work that goes into it! It’s not easy!!
World Puppetry Day was first celebrated in 2003 and sanctioned by the Union Internationale de la Marionette. It was initiated by Iranian puppet artist Javad Zolfaghari and is marked by puppet lovers around the world each year, including the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, which this year will mark the occasion with events on March 19.
Make sure you mark your calendars with dates of “Avenue Q”! April 8, 9, 15 & 16 at 7PM and April 10 at 2PM at the Flickinger Center.
