"Just got back from the Mid-Summer Knights Medieval Festival and the first performance of Great Lakes National Puppet Theater. They played to a packed house and wowed us all! Depending on how you look at things, you might say that is was 3 years, 30 years, or 300 years in the making. All the love and talent of those years showed."
