Mathilda and her best friend Doggie are excited about the bouncy house at their friends birthday party and quarrel about who goes next. Imagine Mathildas surprise when she sees that grown-ups have trouble taking turns, too. Puppeteer Margaret Moody performs the story with needle-felted animal puppets and gentle humor. Come for the show and stay to play with puppets. Taking Turns is best for ages 4 and up.
Margaret has performed lively hand puppet shows in schools, libraries, community centers and private events for more than 25 years. She studied traditional Taiwanese hand puppetry Bu Dai Xi with the I Wan Jan Troupe in Taiwan, and loves to include some of the arts lively acrobatics in her own stories. Margaret performs as a solo artist and also as a member of Galapagos Puppet Theater (NJ) and Dream Tale Puppets (Cape Cod).
This performance is part of Puppet Pop-up, a week of creative puppetry events presented by Artbeat and Margaret Moody Puppets. Artbeat founder Jan Whitted says that hosting a puppet pop-up is a natural match for Artbeat. Helping people find time for expressive, creative play has always been a priority at the creativity studio. In Jans words, What if you could sit down for an hour and just play?
