Inwood Art Works Forum: How to be a Puppeteer

Professional puppeteer Noel MacNeal (“The Muppets;” “Disney’s Bear in the Big Blue House”) will host “HOW TO BE A PUPPETEER.”
Through humor and engaging dialogue, Noel will demonstrate what a puppet “is,” will invite guests onstage to try their “hand” at lip-sync (aka how a puppet talks) with professionally made puppets. Guests will do the same exercises Noel has used to train puppeteers for the international versions of Sesame Street. After the demonstration, he will lead a workshop in making simple “origami” puppets that guests can color, fold, and take with them.  Noel is the author of “10 Minute Puppets” (from Workman Publishing) and his latest book, “BOX!” (from Globe Pequot).  RSVP:
