Great Lakes National Puppet Theater
When we took possession of the puppets and staging for "The Snow Queen", everything was in pretty bad shape. The show was originally produced in the 1980's and had been touring every year since. There were a lot of cracks, chips and breaks in the puppet heads and hands. Many of the costumes were torn, stained or just plain worn through. We thought that all of the set pieces were lost. However, after a few phone calls, two trips to Westfield, New York and another investment, we were able to secure the pieces that still survived. The set is in really bad shape and needs an extraordinary amount of work.
As part of the ongoing work to create, repair and restore the puppets and staging, we will be posting photos, videos and documentation of the project here.
