Meet the Puppeteer
The H. Lee White Museum & Maritime Center is pleased to host a Meet the Puppeteer Workshop, Thursday, September 5th at the Museum located on the West First Street Pier in Oswego’s Historic Maritime District at 7:00 pm.
Master puppeteer, Joe Cashore, willdiscuss and demonstrate to the audience how he designs and manipulates his marionettes to give them human-like movements. His eye for observation has allowed him to create life-like puppets that tell stories, some whimsical, some more emotional, drawing the audience into the experience. “Cashore incorporates the realities of our life experiences into his puppet tales,” stated Mercedes Niess, Executive Director of the Museum & Maritime Center.
This program is in partnership with the SUNY Oswego Artswego programs “Simple Gifts” and “Life in Motion” scheduled for September 7th.
This program is geared for adults and youth ages 9 years and up. Space is limited, to reserve a seat contact the Museum at 342.0480 or
