Kid stuff

A fond memory is writing scenes and songs for a classic marionette company, PUPPETS PLEASE. The company has specialized in building and performing marionettes for preschool and early elementary school audiences for more than 40 years. I had the pleasure of working with founder Shirley McManus and her daughter Terry when they were based in El Cajon, before their big move to the Pacific northwest where they continue to delight young audiences.
