puppet-festival-01The ArtsRock Puppet festival is gearing. It will be part of the ArtsRock Milk and Cookies Playhouse series and is set for Saturday, January 18, 2 p.m. at the Nyack Center, 58 Depew Avenue. ArtsRock says you can watch your child’s eyes light up with delight as they experience the magic of world class puppetry. The Puppet Festival features a one hour puppet show followed by a one hour interactive puppet making workshop.

The show is headlined by the amazing Rick Lyon (Sesame Street, Avenue Q) along with three local favorites including Hudson Valley Vagabonds and Skye Leith from Cirkus Fiasco and Jilly Puppets. After the performance, the kids will get to practice their newfound puppetry skills and continue the show at home with their handmade puppets. All this and milk and cookies too, says ArtsRock.
