Interactive Puppetry Workshops at the Warehouse Theatre

June 8 at 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Hamilton-Gibson Productions hosts visiting artist Ethan Rice for a day of interactive learning and play with puppets on Saturday June 8th at the Warehouse Theatre in Wellsboro.

The workshop is offered to participants of all ages. It will start with a morning session from 10am – 12pm focused on learning all about different kinds of puppets and how they’ve been used through the ages. Participants will also learn about how influences from people, animals, and the materials used to make the puppets can enhance their believability.   After a lunch break, a session from 1pm-3pm will be interactive and hands-on, offering the chance to try your own puppet and learn how to handle them to enhance storytelling, character expression, and other techniques that bring the puppets to life.

Instructor Ethan Rice is a life-long puppeteer who studied theater at Centenary University. In addition to acting, stage managing, and makeup designing he played the character Trekkie Monster in Centenary Stage Company’s production of Avenue Q, a musical with eleven puppet characters who play alongside the three human characters. This production renewed his passion for puppetry and began his journey in crafting his own puppets.

The Puppetry Workshop for All Ages, Saturday June 8th at 10am and 1pm at The Warehouse Theater at 3 Central Ave in Wellsboro, is $20 for a single session, or $30 for both sessions. Family rates are available. Please call Hamilton-Gibson Productions at 570-724-2079 for info or to register, or go to
