Puppet Palooza September 24

Puppet Palooza is a fabulous afternoon filled with puppet shows and puppet activities! It will take place Sunday, September 24 from 1:00-5:00pm at the Clarkston Community Center

Some of Atlanta’s top puppeteers will perform short pieces in a variety style show. Shows will be ongoing throughout the day, along with puppet-making and other games for kids. There will be all kinds of interesting puppets and puppet-related items for sale, as well as concessions.

Featuring:

Tickets may be purchased at the door or at the link below: $10 adults, $5 children.

Proceeds go to the Atlanta Puppetry Guild, a local chapter of the Puppeteers of America, an organization that promotes the art of puppetry. The Atlanta Puppetry Guild gives local puppeteers and anyone interested in the art form a chance to meet, share ideas, and support one another. One way we do this is through offering scholarships to members to further their craft. Puppet Palooza is a fundraiser for the guild scholarship fund; a percentage of the proceeeds also goes to the Clarkston Community Center.

Hooray for Fulton County’s Board of Commissioners and the Fulton County Arts Council!

Piccadilly Puppets is happy to announce that we have received funding for 2017 from the Fulton County Board of Commissioners, through the guidance of the Fulton County Arts Council. Fulton County is the leading public funder for the arts in the State of Georgia. We are thankful that our county understands the importance of the arts to our community. Part of our mission is to bring the art of puppetry to as many neighborhoods as possible. Our grant from the Fulton County Arts Council supplements our main source of income, which is the fees we charge for performances. This enables us to hire skilled, professional puppeteers and pay them a competitive wage, while still keeping our prices affordable to most groups. We can also give back to the community through occasional discounted or even free performances in Fulton County. Through the application and review process and final reports, the arts council also helps us to set goals, to meet artistic standards, to be financially responsible, and to be held accountable for the way we spent the funds at the end of each year. These grants benefit not only our organization, but more importantly YOU, as our audience. Please join us in thanking the Board of Commissioners and the Arts Council. If you live in Fulton and enjoy the arts, please let your Commissioner know
