Theatre New Brunswick is excited to announce an upcoming workshop with renowned puppeteer and educator, Mike Peterson.

“Mike is an absolute master of his craft,” said TNB artistic director Thomas Morgan Jones. “Early in his career, he worked on the film Labyrinth with David Bowie and TV’s Fraggle Rock with Jim Henson, and his craft and abilities are built on this foundation.  Decades later, he is still performing and is currently on a national tour.”

Peterson’s two day workshop will be tailored to all levels of skill and interest and is guaranteed to be an enjoyable mix entertainment and education.

“He is a passionate and avid teacher,” said Jones, “and is currently developing a curriculum for teaching puppetry.  Workshop participants will be able to experience his wisdom and experience firsthand.  And, to boot, it will be absolutely brilliant good fun.  Having taken his workshop before, it is a blend of rigorous practical tools alongside imagination and play!”
