ABOUT JILLY PUPPETS
HOW DID YOU BEGIN IN THE PUPPETS BIZ?
In 2007, my little brother asked me to write a puppet show for his wedding. I wrote that first puppet show in the middle of the night while my baby slept, and performed it to an enthusiastic crowd of children, young adults, grandparents, great aunts and everything in between. When I looked out into that first audience and saw my beautiful brother howling with laugher, I was hooked! I have been writing, creating and performing original, imaginative, love-filled puppet shows ever since! I am a devotee of creating joyful, soulful experiences for children and adults.
WHERE DO YOUR PUPPETS COME FROM?
My puppets characters are created with up-cycled and recycled materials. I use fabrics from favorite clothes that my children have outgrown, stockings, dogbeds, chopsicks…whatever sparks my imagination that I think will delight the children. I build the puppets with the intention that children will love and smoosh and hug them until they are totally worn out. I construct cuddly animals, all kinds of people with all shades of skin, backgrounds and abilities, whimsical fantasy creatures, everyday objects…
What's the vibe of your show?
Jilly Puppets shows are exciting and fun, silly and innovative. Even thought I have been performing and teaching for over a decade, I rewrite material constantly and search for new inspiration to bring into the room with us.
