Rachel Skullcap, our friendly pirate, hosts an immersive online puppet experience, not through a looking glass but, through a ship's porthole (or zoom screen). This zoom experience is limited to 10 screens so within the performance each participant will be mentioned by name and have a chance to share an idea, thus viewers will have a customized puppet show. Meet puppet characters such as a pirate, a pig, a princess, and a mermaid. Go on an adventure with a pirate and see the stories come to life, as participants will be able to give input to the show! The puppets and Rachel Skullcap will ask for responses by the audience. The show lasts between 35-40 minutes and no two shows are ever the same. For the best experience, we recommend that children be accompanied by an adult or older sibling, who will be able to mute/un-mute and help guide them through this interactive session.
Charlotte Anne Dore
Rosalita's Puppets is a touring puppet company based in Somerville MA. It was established in 1993 by actor/puppeteer Charlotte Anne Dore, who received a BA in Creative Arts from Nottingham Trent University in the UK. Charlotte builds the puppets, sets, and costumes, and also performs in the shows and creates original, inventive, and interactive presentations, delighting audiences of all ages. She presents one of a kind puppet shows using live sound rather than a recorded soundtrack, which allows for improvisation and adaptation, making no two shows the same. Each show is influenced by the audience's responses to questions, and encourages creative thinking and empowerment.
