June 15, 2002
Well, here it is June already. We've been working on two projects since the last page, one is a Jester puppet which will be described on the next page, the other is a live performance on June 14th by the Olde World Puppet Theatre for Portland's Pride 2002, a two day event and parade which celebrate the diversity of Portland's citizens.
We performed The Baby Dragon Finds a Job, one of our most requested productions.
Its the story of a King's gold, a Gypsy family who like to "count" it, a dragon family summoned to guard what's left, and how the Baby Dragon emerges victorious.
Due to its elaborate nature, BDFJ is performed only rarely, and rarer still outdoors.
In its full length version, it runs 58 minutes, but we had to cut it down to 45 minutes to fit the time slot we were assigned.
Everybody loved the show (us included!!!). Our thanks to Pete Johnson who took the photos for us.
The pictures below show how it went.
