Day Two: North Branch arrival and first workshop

After an 8am departure, and more chain-skipping trouble for Andrea, we eventually arrive at the lovely, cozy home of our North Branch host, Michelle Olson.

She has all sorts of delicious veggie foods prepared for us, as well as a big, open garage in which we re-organize our gear!

This afternoon we conduct our first workshop in the cafeteria of the Sunrise River School. We work with a group of about 20 kids, grades k-6. We explain that we are traveling puppeteers and we have a show about a balloon that needs their help.

After some warm-up exercises, they are split into four groups: large puppet makers, small puppet makers, sound makers, and video makers. We got all of our content made today; tomorrow we will put it all together in the gymnasium and do the show!
