Learn how professional puppeteers bring Muppet-style mouth and rod puppets to life in this fun class especially designed for AANE affiliates. Once we cover the basics of puppet animation, we’ll try our hands at performing in front of a camera-and-monitor set up, just like those used by film and television puppeteers. Everyone will have a chance to try exercises for “lip-synch,” maintaining puppet focus, making entrances and exits, and more. A great class for muppet fans and puppetry enthusiasts! Puppets will be provided by the instructor, though personal puppets are welcome.

Sarah Nolen is a puppeteer and film-maker originally from Austin, Texas. She has an MFA in Puppet Arts from UCONN, and she has trained at Sesame Workshop, the Eugene O’Neill National Puppetry Conference, Sandglass Theater’s Intensive Training, and more. Sarah’s thesis film, Treeples, has screened at film festivals nationally, most recently at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) in New York City. In Boston, Sarah creates lives performances for kids and adults and teaches puppetry to students of all ages.
