The Great Bug-tacular Game Show
Featuring Adam Swartz Puppets
Location: Trinitiy United Methodist Church
Adam has a degree in Integrative Arts from Penn State, a major that allowed him to combine visual art and theater, two staple mediums for the puppeteer. Since 1999, Adam has been traveling the United States, storytelling and performing with companies like Middle Earth Studios, the Itinerant Theater Company, the Nittany Valley Shakespeare Company, and the Next Stage. He gained much experience and insight training with Sesame Workshop puppeteers.
With his own puppet company, Adam Swartz Puppets, he creates original puppet shows using a variety of puppetry styles. The shows address a variety of themes, from conservation to folklore to friendship, with humor and heart. They are engaging and interactive for children and adults. Adam Swartz Puppets performs at schools, libraries, retirement homes, festivals, birthday parties, camps, sidewalks; anywhere in need of puppets! In addition to performance, Adam has a background in education. He presents hands-on workshops and long-term art residencies for all ages, teaches after school classes, and runs an "Art and Acting with Puppets" summer camp. Adam also builds and leases custom puppets; you may have seen his "Dragon" or "Gingy" in one of the area's many recent productions of Shrek the Musical.
