PROVIDENCE, RI - - Hold onto your seats! Rhode Island's Only
Late-night Puppet Salon's takes off on its first ever SLAMTASTIC
PUPPET MINI-TOUR!!!
	In a startling & unprecedented Turnip first, BLOOD FROM A TURNIP has
joined forces with THE PUPPET SHOWPLACE in BROOKLINE  to bring you the
first ever SLAMTASTIC PUPPET MINI-TOUR! "Two cities in two nights!"
exclaimed Turnip visionary, Vanessa Gilbert, "It was more than even I
could have ever dreamed of!"
	As for how this arrangement came about, plaything & Turnip
spokes-kweer, Marsian explained, "After sold out shows & with an
audience that has been fatigued by reality television, I believe that
these late night puppet slams are becoming the next wave in American
vaudeville. . .so much so that I predict puppeteers will be the next
rock stars!" Added the furry co-hostess, "It was only natural we went
on tour."
	Boston puppet mogul, Carl Wieting joins the Turnip gang, as does
alpha-male, Matt Kandarian, filling in for Ms. Gilbert while she is
off on assignment. "I haven't been this excited to host a pupet show
since Ms. Doucette's kindergarden class", admited Kandarian, candidly.

	ACTS INCLUDE:

* Emmy Bean with "War Bride", an exploration of longing, loss, &
absent love at a 2am kitchen table in 1946.

*Jonny Clockworks with his small-scale piece, "minutia".

* Ken Berman, Faye Dupras & Sara Frechette of Dramaton Theater
performing "The Traveler".
