Job Description & Responsibilities

For each event, the puppeteers will need to pick up puppet show equipment, drive to the event location and set up the show, perform the show (with a co-worker), take down the puppet theater, and return the equipment to the storage location. At some of the puppet shows, puppeteers will also help the children make sock puppets.
