Puppets Say What? with Nicole Cloeren and Puppets a la Carte

March 5, 2023

First Sundays at RAM

with Nicole Cloeren and Puppets a la Carte

“Puppets Say What?”

Riverside Art Museum

3425 Mission Inn Blvd

Riverside, CA 92501

2:00-3:00 PM

Free and open to the public. No registration required.

An important part of puppeteering is finding the right voice for a puppet – and an important part of a puppet show are the sound effects. Join us as Nicole's puppets help you play with the microphone and experiment with sound effects. We will explore these techniques through the New Mexican story "The Goat in the Chile Patch."

Nicole B. Cloeren is the founder and creative director of Puppets a la Carte where she uses puppets to feed the imagination.  Emphasizing play and techniques of improvisation, she creates a space of surprise and wonder in which we all learn from one another through puppetry arts. Nicole is a Teaching Artist with the McCallum Theatre. She likes to pretend her PhD stands for doctor of puppet handling. When not talking with her hands – or to her hands – Nicole enjoys eating jicama, playing dice, camping, and spending time with her family.
