Alumni Scholarship

The Alumni Scholarship was founded on the belief that puppetry is a contagious art form. Once you have attended the National Puppetry Conference you will most likely be infected by the PUPPET PANDEMIC. The only cure is a dose of puppetry!

Funds for this Scholarship are raised in part by PUPPET PANDEMIC, a showcase of works developed at the National Puppetry Conference. This showcase of puppetry pieces explore the contagious nature of puppets. These artists redefine conventional notions of puppetry. From marionettes to papier mache mayhem, puppeteers breed new strains of creativity and present them to an audience of willing test subjects.

All profits from the The PUPPET PANDEMIC performances, raffles, and donations fund the Alumni Scholarship to attend the National Puppetry Conference held at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center. The Alumni Scholarship is meant to support artists and encourage them to propagate provocative theatrical works.

Please help spread the PUPPET PANDEMIC by donating to the Alumni Scholarship!
