Cheers to Puppeteers continues the founder of the Center for
Puppetry Arts - Vincent Anthony! Vince was the Executive Director
of the Center from 1978 until December 2019, where he oversaw every
aspect of the organization - from its award-winning performances to
its world-renowned collection of puppet objects. He is also the
co-founder of the Vagabond Puppet company and continues to serve
the Center as an executive advisor.
We talk to Vince about how the Center continues to educate and entertain during the COVID-19 pandemic, what it takes to develop a main-stage puppet show from beloved children's literature, and how he and his team curates the 6,000+ item collection. PLUS: find out what scene of The Muppet Movie Vince was on set for when he asked Jim Henson to be at the Center's ribbon-cutting ceremony!
