Brett DeBruyn: Puppeteer/storyteller
I've always enjoyed telling stories and entertaining people, whether with puppets or alone (but preferably with puppets).
Of course, Bil Baird (creator of the puppets from Sound of Music) is a big influence as is Jim Henson, Wayland and Madame, Lambchop and so many many more. I've loved watching them all.
I love seeing puppets and puppetry of all types performed and I love sharing some of that same joy with my audiences.
What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 30 - 45 minutes
In any of our shows the audience will see puppets. Hand puppets, rod puppets, and/or marionettes. whether its storytelling with Brett and Rifo or the singing and dancing of Carlotta and Howard (as well as a trumpet playing rabbit, Dancing peanut and many more) there will be puppets and laughter abounding.
All our performances and stories are family friendly, and appropriate for all ages from 4 to 104.
Its amazing to me when people in their 60's (and older) come up to me after a performance and tell me "I've never seen a puppet sow before. It was wonderful! Thank you."
The audience will see good old fashioned singing, dancing and humor in ways most have never seen before.
Whatever the age group, this will be a show enjoyed by everyone.
For marionette show an 8x5 space is needed. Other shows require less space.
For our marionette show we require an area 8x5 with access to electricity. Our marionette sow is rarely performed outside. But all other shows (storytelling and hand puppet shows) can be.
