Dolly Wiggler Cabaret

If you have registered for the conference, your registration includes a ticket to the Dolly Wiggler Cabaret on Saturday, June 2nd, 2018!

Come to the Dolly Wiggler Cabaret, ol’ chum, for an extremely popular night of short form puppetry for adult audiences.

Mooky, the glorious compére is back from touring with an Italian circus to host the cabaret in most hilarious fashion with vaudevillain Shane Baker. Be entranced by work from Calgary greats Jen Lynn BainPape and TaperLong Grass StudioAlice NelsonElaine Weryshko, and more.

Take advantage of not-to-be-missed folks from far away, in town for the Puppet Power conference:  Puppetmongers Theatre,  Andrew Periale, Emma Fisher of Beyond the Bark Theatre, all the way from Ireland, and more. It’s wild, weird, and always entertaining! Thanks to the Puppet Slam Network for your support!
