any way back to your regularly scheduled Blog.

"So , how did I come to work for Puppetworks?" you may ask,(or maybe you haven't but here's the answer anyway.)

Well were to start , I guess I should say that I was sort of lost in how to get started in puppetry.(not that I'm still not lost), I had finished with school, and was sort of stuck on what to do next. I was holding down a pretty steady gig at a deli, and building my own stuff at night.But the coming home smelling of roast beef and french fries was getting really old really fast.

My sister was at school in NYC studying acting and she mentioned that she picks up a paper called Backstage that had listings for numerous performing jobs.So,on one fine day I decide to pick one up, while sitting at my favorite coffee shop i stumbled upon an add that was to finally get me moving in the right direction.It was for a paid internship at "THE SWEDISH COTTAGE MARIONETTE THEATRE" in central park NYC.

After faking my way thru the audition(i had never worked a real marionette in my life , I was pretty much "Muppet-centric" until that point),I found out that I got the job. I think for the first time I felt like I was on my way.Keep in mind it was a internship, but i was doing much more than just loading trucks, i was puppteering, and learning about stringing up marionettes, and making controls.And as luck should have it ,I was working with a real Pro,Nick Coppola.

As the summer went along we became good friends, and as my Internship was coming to an end He offered me a Job at his own theatre in Brooklyn, Puppetworks,Inc. I have to say that with out Nicks faith in me, and his encouragement I probably would not be here today writing about a New show for the Theatre.In a lot of ways he is responsible for me continuing on in puppetry.

But it was those early days at Puppetworks were the first seeds were planted in my head about doing "The Reluctant Dragon".My first shows at Puppetworks were Traditional glove hand puppet shows(like Punch and Judy),It seemed to me at the time that "The Reluctant Dragon" would make a great hand puppet show .I even did a few sketches of how I thought it might look,but the great things about Ideas is that they can change and grow, as you will see as this Blog moves further along.

drawing to come soon, im to tired to scann anything at 4 in the morning.

Well James, I'll certainly stay tuned for "THE RELUCTANT DRAGON".

The marionette looks great even if he is trying to unionise the dragon labour.

I find this blog very encouraging, particularly the "I was sort of lost in how to get started in puppetry!" I am a puppeteer trying to get started. I first read about The Reluctant Dragon on the website. Can't wait to see the show!

Generic Viagra is a prescription drug that takes care of the physical dilemma of erectile dysfunction in men. Sildenafil citrate is the major component of generic viagra pills that dilates the arteries in the penis and allows filling of blood in small spaces of penis that hardens and gets erect.Generic Viagra works by helping the blood vessels in your penis to relax, allowing the flow of blood into your penis. The result of this is improved erectile function. Generic Propecia is a medication used for the treatment of prostate cancer and pattern baldness in men. It is the main ingredient in two drugs – Proscar for prostate cancer and Propecia for pattern baldness. Viagra has been clinically shown to improve erectile function even in men who had diabetes or prostate surgery. The pill contains this component that helps increase blood flow to the penis and may help men with ED get and keep an erection satisfactory for sexual activity.Generic Cialis is slightly different from the other erectile drugs available in the market as it may work up to 36 hrs after dosing. Generic Levitra orks along with sexual stimulation to help achieve an erection when taken 30 to 60 minutes before sexual activity.
