As part of the Ballard Institute's Spring Puppet Forum “Masters of the Marionette: Rufus and Margo Rose,” puppeteer and teacher Fred Thompson will discuss the work of puppeteers Rufus and Margo Rose. Thompson, a mainstay of the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center’s National Puppetry Conference, first saw Rufus and Margo Rose perform in 1947, and has had a long and illustrious career in Connecticut as a teacher and maker of dance, theater, and puppetry.

Admission to this event is free (donations greatly appreciated!), and refreshments will be served. Come early and experience our puppet exhibitions, including “Masters of the Marionette: Rufus and Margo Rose,” as well as the extensive video resources in our library nook. Forums will also be live-streamed on our page: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/forum-live-stream. For more information, call 860.486.8580 or email bimp@uconn.edu.
