Welcome to WP Puppet Theatre! Get ready to explore, create and learn, all through the power of puppetry.
WP Puppet Theatre plans to create a community video of a modern day story about Canada’s new avian emblem – the Gray Jay. We will be inviting one hundred and fifty or more, local, national and international, amateur and professional puppeteers of all ages, and their puppets, to read and record the story, one line at a time. Why? We’re celebrating Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation! We are commissioning an Alberta writer to write a 150 sentence story about the Gray Jay. Submissions due Feb 15 2017. > click for more information
