Seeing the recent write-up in the local newspaper of Molly Piper’s Acorn & Rose Puppet Theater presentation in Rainer, which followed a recent write-up on the Yelm performance, was heartening, as this show is so worthy to be publicized. Her work has been covered here twice, previously.
From Acorn & Rose Puppet Theater:
“Acorn & Rose Puppet Theater is the love-child for children’s author Molly Piper. Having written, designed and illustrated several books, conducted young author programs for more than 75,000 children, teenagers, teachers and parents, Molly found that it was time to expand the adventure. The “new day” began with a grant for teaching puppetry to a small group of fifth and sixth graders.”
“The excitement and joy of this workshop resulted in wonderful puppets, exuberant little performances, and surprised audiences of families, friends, and fellow students. Teachers at the school requested that Molly return the following year to do puppetry in their classrooms. As one teacher said, “This has changed my life! I want Molly in my classroom. I can use puppetry to teach science, history, literature, everything. My sixth graders will love learning this way.”
“Teaching and performing a live theater art seems to be the natural culmination of many years as artist, writer, teacher, story teller, carpenter, sculptor, mother and friend.”
