Plant Puppetry: Storytelling Through Nature
The O’Hara Commons is delighted to be hosting two visiting theatre educators: Peggy Mecham and Alexandra Mosoeanu. Peggy and Alexandra will be the educators and coordinators for Curiosity Camps during the first half of August.
We will have four days of puppetry and storytelling through nature. Each session will include making puppets (finger puppets, masks, shadow puppets and marionettes) and developing story lines based on themes found in nature. We will build a stage and the camp will culminate in participating children performing a play.

10 AM until 12:30 PM
Ages 6 to 13
