It's World Day of Puppetry Today!

How can you help to celebrate puppetry? Go to a puppet show at your nearest theater. Buy puppets for your children and teach them how to perform with them. Or even make a puppet of your own and share it with your friends, family, and neighbors.  And don't forget to join the guild this Saturday at the Center for Puppetry Arts:

The Atlanta Puppetry Guild will be providing puppetry demonstrations at the Center for Puppetry Arts during their celebration of the World Day of Puppetry on Saturday, March 24th, 2018.
