"I was so lucky to study for a week with Connie Manson a few summers ago. Her magical storytelling and enchanting personality continue to inspire me!"--S.C.

Puppet Parties include games, a sing-a-long to live music, a magical puppet story of your choice . . . and . . . bubbles, of course! A crafting option is available for the guests to create a puppet or an instrument chosen to complement the story. The guest of honor receives a magical hand crafted gift!
