The first formal meeting of the TT Guild happened at the Puppeteers of America National Festival in Toledo, Ohio, July 27 to Aug.2, 1997. Bob Burns and Gigi Sandberg gave a workshop there on Performing with Toy Theatre and examples of our TT collections were displayed and enjoyed by many of the 650 puppeteers who attended the Festival. 34 of them participated in the Toy Theatre workshop. Bob has been named the official T.T. Consultant on the PofA Staff. He has, to date, published three Toy Theatre Guild Newsletters (hard copy) and plans to continue when/if he receives the input and feedback he needs. .

send material to him at [email@example.com]
for the hard-copy Toy Theatre Newsletter. OR his

He particularly wants "how to's". . . suggestions that have worked for
you. He has plans for a great collapsible stage for the next
but needs more material to share FROM YOU.
