grantWould you like to bring Piccadilly Puppets to your school, library or non-profit organization in Fall 2018 or Spring 2019? If your organization is located in a county in which no organization received an FY18 GCA Project, Partner or Arts Education Grant, you can apply for a Vibrant Communities grant from the Ga Council for the Arts. The grants are for arts programming; why not have us do puppet shows and/or workshops?

‘TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS
Piccadilly takes a few liberties with the classic holiday poem penned by Clement C. Moore more than 100 years ago. In this version, performed with hand puppets, children will get the real story of that night from a mouse who was an eyewitness to the whole affair. It’s a merry tale with lots of silly twists and turns to entertain and amuse children of all ages. PreK-5, families, or senior citizens.
A tale of Christmas spirit and friendship. This endearing Christmas story is about a hungry fox and a lonely bunny, and how they find that, for them, the true meaning of Christmas is friendship. Although there’s no mention of any reindeer in the forest, Santa Claus still manages to make an appearance—much to the delight of the audience!
PICCADILLY HOLIDAY A secular, holiday-themed variety show. The show will feature several pieces including a rod and hand puppet version of “The Nutcracker”, an ice-skating marionette, and an original hand puppet story of an elf that comes to Atlanta to escape the North Pole snow. The benefit of this show is that it is adaptable to whatever length the presenter needs. All ages.
“You were fantastic…Please come back and do another puppet show!”
That’s what Taylor, a second-grade student at Jackson Elementary wrote us in a letter after our performance of Cherokee Tales. The children had obviously enjoyed the performance, laughing at all of the funny parts, chanting along with Chief Gray Eagle. They might not have even realized how much the show fit into the Native American unit of their curriculum! Thanks to a grant, we were able to perform at that school for a reasonable price. We need support from individuals, too – people like you that see the value of puppets and arts in education.
Ga Gives Day is a chance to highlight the many non-profits working to make our state a better place to live. Georgia is at the bottom of the country in government support of the arts, but YOU can help bridge the gap so that kids of all backgrounds and income levels can experience our shows!
