Puppet Theatre: Then & Now

Michael Cayo Cotter, founder and director of the University Park-based Blue Sky Puppet Theatre, provides a historical look at how and why he started Blue Sky Puppet Theatre in 1974 and its transition from an adult experimental company and political satire street theatre to a full-time, fine art educational touring company for young audiences. The discussion includes a short performance, as well as a review of the five popular puppetry forms — puppetry, hand, rod, marionette, shadow and table top — and some information about how Zoom has transformed puppetry performances. It’s a great conversation for all ages.

The event was part of the Route 1 Corridor Conversations series organized by Hyattsville Aging in Place, Helping Hands University Park, Neighbors Helping Neighbors College Park, and Explorations on Aging College Park.
