I helped out a friend today with a holiday show in which I performed Kugel the mouse [puppet] and Maury the Menorah [animatronic]. It's been a LONG time since I've performed a puppet for a show and I have to say, it felt great. I loved getting into character and, even more so, loved the cheers and screams of delight of all the kids enjoying the show. I wish I had photos to share.
Hope this is the start of something new and exciting for the new year.
