Joggy's Puppetry Adventure - Part One

    A few of you might remember how I needed your positive thoughts, prayers etc. for a musical I wanted to puppeteer in. If not, well, there's this musical and I want to puppeteer in it. You didn't miss anything.

    Anyway, what happened with that? Well I hadn't gotten a reply for a long time. I had kinda given up on it.

    Then a teacher at my Cabaret School told me one day: "You know what you should do? You build puppets, you're a puppeteer, you write things, you're talented. Write to a local TV channel and try and get your own short puppet sketch show." I was amazed. Finally somebody understood exactly what I always dreamed of to do, and he told me to do something I thought would be impossible. I mean, this is the exact same way Jim Henson started! So I wrote an application letter, and yesterday I mailed it out.

    And WHAT DO YOU KNOW?! I just opened my email box and I got an email from the musical director, saying she wants me to be a puppeteer for the musical! How about it??

    I'm so happy about this! I can call myself a professional puppeteer soon! Of course the musical doesn't mean the TV series is off. I'm gonna try and see if I can do both! Oh boy, am I excited about this!

    Anyway, thanks everyone for all yer kind wishes!
