LITTLE ARTSHRAM SUMMER NEWS:
NEXT WEEK! At the Traverse City Film Festival, Kids Fest on Saturday, July 30th @ 11:00(show begins @ 11:15ish), at Central Grade School, Children from the summer camp program will join O’k Puppet Theater and the Pretty Good Players.
“Shel is Swell” is based on the poetry of Shel Silverstein, directed by Little Artshram Directress, Penny Krebiehl, with Artistic Directress, Megan Kellepourey, AND, special music by composer Mr. Rokko Jans, who scored Shel Silversteins’ movie “Things Change”.
About “Shel is Swell”: With respectful recognition of his wit and wisdom, Shel meets the Little Artshram Summer Campers and learns a thing or two about Permaculture. Join us for a witty and wondrous puppet adventure!
About O’k Puppet Theater: O’k Puppet Theater, discovered itself and has worked in collaboration with Little Artshram, in Traverse City, since 2000. Penny Krebiehl, founder of O’k Puppet Theater and the Pretty Good Players, has had the pleasure of working with Dede and Marc Alderman and many other community members, bringing BIG puppets and a storytelling parade to Northern Michigan for the annual Earth Day celebration. Our O’k and Pretty Good work continues from a long line of inspiration and mentoring by Alien Frontier Puppet and Mask Theater in Lansing, Michigan and Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theater in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Our aim with our serious ridiculousness, is to continue to blend puppet, mask-making, and storytelling with ecological education, through a permaculture and nature awareness curriculum that Little Artshram shares with the Traverse City community.
