    My answer is obviously Steve Whitmire, but I would also really love to take part in the workshops that Noel McNeal and Peter Linz run.

    Peter and Noel did a puppetry in Texas, not too far from where I live. I was super stoked and would've totally gone if it hadn't been so darn expensive.

    Absolutely and without a doubt worth it, though. I went two years ago, and I'm going back this year. If you can manage to go, you will not regret the expense. One of my favorite weeks of all time.

    I'm glad you enjoyed yourself. Unfortunately i'm only seventeen and am currently getting all my money from of my parents.

    For me it would definitely have to be Caroll Spinney.

    Steve Whitmere and Kevin Clash as well.

    If I didn't live on the other side of the world, you can bet that I'd be there.

    If I could work with any living Muppeteer, it would be Caroll Spinney because not only is he a genuinely gifted performer, but he also seems like a really nice person in general. He'd be easy to get along with and would tell great stories spanning his five decade career.

    If I could work with any deceased Muppeteer, it would be Jim Henson, for the same reasons listed above. Plus, Jim's ability to play serious AND silly characters would please me to no end. It's amazing how he was able to play Muppets ranging in personality from Kermit, Rowlf, and Cantus Fraggle (serious) to Link Hogthrob, Dr. Teeth, the Swedish Chef, and Ernie (silly).

    Actually, I would also like to perform with Ryan Dillon. He's a really great performer and he seems like a pretty fun guy to hang out with.

    Stephanie- not only is she a great puppeteer she's a Tony nominated actress!

    Steve too- I might have a crush on him...even if he is older than my dad

    I know it's not possible anymore, but ever since I saw Being Elmo, I would've LOVED to work with Kermit Love. The guy was a master.

    Oh the stories Frank, Dave and Steve must have from the good old days with Jim...
