    Puppeter Dave Goelz is going to be honored for his 40 years of puppetry in September. This grand event is being held at the Jim Henson Studios in LA, and is being sponsored by The Jim Henson Company, The Muppets Studios,and The Center for Puppetry Arts.

    This sounds so wonderful, and it maybe the closest thing we will ever get to another Muppetfest. Now I have already sent Henson an e-mail asking for more information, like will the event be open to the public, and how to be able to attend. Once I get that info I will share it here,so to be continue....

    Well, about time!! Dave's been really underrated in my opinion, and I'm glad that this is being done while he's still alive. Don't forget to fill us in if Henson replies!

    I'm really hoping to find out as soon as possible so I can start planning and saving for this trip. I'm hoping that I can find others who would be going and not from LA so we might get a group rate at a hotel.

    This could be one of the closest things we will get to another Muppet fest. This will also be something that will let people inside Jim Henson a studios for the first time ever!

    I live Tennessee miles from California,and I know there are others who live in surrounding states who would love to go. We need to work out something where we can go as a group. Possibly meeting in Atlanta an flying west. The good thing about this is we have time to save up money and plan this out right....? Anyone with me?

    I'll attend if I can find a magic genie or rescue a spiderfly that turns into a fairy odd old man godmother...

    I live in Fort Worth. Thanks for the offer but, I don't think my parents would really feel comfortable with me being in a car with strangers for several hours.
