Seeking 20 puppeteers, experienced and new, for paid work!
Be part of a large puppet procession in downtown Cleveland on Saturday, July 27th.

Learn how to operate exquisite, life-sized animal puppets, from cheetahs to giraffes. In partnership with Cleveland Public Library's 150th Anniversary street party, this is a rare opportunity to work with a master puppeteer from S. Africa, in his first American appearance. Roger's puppets opened the Rio Olympics and FIFA World Cup, danced with the Moscow Ballet, and have been in ads for Coke, Volkswagon, and Microsoft. 20 puppeteers will be selected for a procession down Superior Ave. to Public Square. More info about Roger here: http://www.creatures.co.za/assets/content-page.php?id=home
