National Day of Puppetry

Gina Wilhelm Actress - National Day of Puppetry

April 28th was the National Day of Puppetry.  Gina Wilhelm Actress celebrated by watching some excellent puppets and puppetry in "Ghostbusters" in 70 mm at the beautiful Cinerama in Seattle. 

The film was preceded by a talk from Sam Longoria, who worked on the film, including in some capacities with the onionhead/"Slimer" puppet.

Several puppet centers held workshops and other special events, including the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, GA, and the Puppet Guild of Greater St. Louis, Inc.

My celebration will continue this week with the opening of Thistle Theatre's production of Goldilocks and the Three Bears at Sunset Hill Community Club in Ballard, WA (3003 NW 66th Street). Shows are Friday, May 4, at 7:30 p.m., and May 5 and 6 at 1 and 3 p.m. Tickets are $8 for children and seniors, $9 for adults.

I will also be performing with Thistle Theatre at the Fussy Cloud Puppet Slam on May 5 at 8 p.m. at Theatre off Jackson, 409 7th Avenue South. Tickets are $10.

Happy National Day of Puppetry!
