Subject: [Puptcrit] PofA 2006 Regional Fests


Hi, all!  The Great Lakes Region of the Puppeteers of America and the 
Ontario Puppetry Association, with support from the Great Plains Region of 
the Puppeteers of America, are planning a conference for July 27-30, 2006 at 
the wonderful Fanshawe College, London Ontario, Canada 
(http://www.fanshawec.on.ca).  It's called "Celebrate the Puppet" and will 
include offerings for the academic, the professional, and everything in 
between.  Truly an international conference.  Very exciting and very 
affordable, too (e.g. rooms at the college, newly built, are suites with 2 
bedrooms, sitting area, private bathroom and kitchenette--and will cost ~ 
$50 Canadian, or ~ $42 US per night--or only $20 a person!).

Close to Stratford Fest, so make it a theatre vacation (check out the 
Stratford offerings for 2006): http://www.stratfordfestival.ca

We're awaiting final approval from the P of A Board of Trustees but have 
amazing things proposed--events, workshops, exhibits, films, performances 
that have not been available before.  'T'will be great!  Mark your calendars 
and stay tuned.

Info will be here (note that old dates are on the site--new ones are above, 
July 27-30, 2006):

All the best,
Aretta Baumgartner
Great Lakes Regional Director
Puppeteers of America, Inc.
