Pittsburgh Puppet Slam!
A Puppet Slam is a showcase of short, contemporary puppetry. The main performances will include marionettes, giant puppets, hand puppets, and shadow puppets. The evening will be hosted by Pittsburgh favorites Tom Sarver and Dave English. Expect performances from seasoned puppeteers Cheryl Capezzuti and Kellee Van Aken (Fuzzy Boundary Productions), Kirsten Ervin and Darlene Thompson. Relative newcomers Becky Spevak and Suzanne Werder will round out the show.
Prior to the main event, puppet-lovers are invited to magical evening picnicking outdoors from 6:00-7:00.  Bring a picnic basket or grab a bite from Asado, enjoy a tasty beer or a non-alcoholic Teaboy Pop and try on giant puppets and dance.  You are also invited to bring a favorite puppet to showcase at the event and enjoy a treat from the puppet-themed bake sale with proceeds benefiting the Puppetry Guild. The picnic will end with an interactive dance experience with Giant Puppet Dance Club, winners of an Awesome Pittsburgh grant. At 7:00 a parade will lead people indoors.

The Workingmens Beneficial Union was a 100-year-old social hall that served the Spring Hill community; it has been vacant for about 15 years. It is now home to Spring Hill Brewing, Rescue Street Farms and the WBU. The Puppetry Guild of Pittsburgh is excited to help activate this new event locale that includes both indoor and outdoor space less than 10 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh.  Learn more at https://www.goodfoodpittsburgh.com/spring-hill-brewing-will-open-this-week/
