Ping Pong's Puppet Workshop

August 23, 2001

We went back to Tears of Joy's rehearsal space this morning to be taped for a segment of an upcoming Oregon Art Beat on KOPB, the local PBS affiliate. It won't air until April, 2002, (due to production delays, it actually aired in November, 2002) but they wanted to see the work in progress, so we did it today. K.C. Cowan, the host of the show was most gracious and asked good questions about how a show such as Perseus comes together.
