“The Mr. Mouse Show” is a participatory puppet performance workshop offering young children a fun, positive experience with sing-along songs and their own puppet project.
Long Island puppeteer Katie Polk believes her puppet art helps people develop their own creativity.Â She builds all her own puppets, using items she finds on beaches, in thrift stores and anywhere that may be home to clothes pins, buttons, empty thread spools, odd material and the like.Â Just about any item around may give life to one of Katie’s puppets. Combining sounds, textures, colors and rhythms Katie uses her inventive imagination to bring her puppet characters to life. She likes to incorporate “fun, silliness, imagination and a sense of wonder” into her puppets so “anyone, at any age can enjoy themselves.”
