Description: Long Island puppeteer Katie Polk builds all her own puppets, using items she finds on beaches, in thrift stores and anywhere else that may be home to clothespins, buttons, empty thread spools, odd material and the like. Combining sounds, textures, colors and rhythms, Katie uses her imagination to bring her puppet characters to life. She likes to incorporate "fun, silliness, imagination and a sense of wonder" into her puppets so anyone, at any age will enjoy them." Children will make puppets after the performance. Reservations required.
