    Hello MC puppet family. I'm too excited as I approach the launch of my anti-bullying puppet musical Helping Drew. We're 'launching' this weekend with a private showcase for our creative crew and starting booking for K-5 school assembly programs.

    A 5 minute audio sample is available on our website at http://upinarms.biz/Events.html

    I'd like some feedback on naming the facebook page URL too [facebook.com/company_name]. Obviously 'upinarms' is already taken. I'm considering 'upinarmspuppets' or 'puppetupinarms'. I think they both have their advantages. The first one is exactly what it is while the 2nd rolls off the tongue. What say you all?

    I love that david. I just listened to the sound clip, it's great. The songs are so cool. I hope the launch goes well.
    I kinda like "upinarmspuppets" as the name. "Puppetupinarms" for some reason deosn't flow as much I think. Unless you made the "puppet" plural. But that's just my thoughts.

    The launch was fantastic and we are on our way! So many little changes were made going into the showcase and after the fact as well. I canvased the local schools and did a mailing for others and just got my first booking today. So excited.

    A local video company was on board to record our 2nd showcase back in January. I just got the promotional clip today and posted it online. Some changes have already been made to the set since the recording and puppet work has gotten better but, you can see what it's all about here:

    Finally saw the whole Video David. That is just so neat. The set and puppets look beautiful and the performances look terrific.
    My mom works at an Elementary school. Maybe someday they'll see it there.

    Thanks Bekka! We'll definitely be looking into the possibilities of travelling with the show. I hope I get to see more puppet/Muppet friends across the country.
