Join us for a fun-filled musical puppet show for all ages!

"Once upon a time, in a kingdom far away..." 

So begins the story of The Dragon Who Lived Downstairs. This magical children's tale will be told by Anne Newman of Puppetfolk Productions. This event will include a puppet-show and a create-your-own-puppet workshop. Come early — just before the show begins — to meet Anne's variety marionettes.

About the Show:

The Dragon Who Lived Downstairs was presented as a live puppet show only once in 1984 by puppeteer, Burr Tillstrom of Kukla, Fran, and Ollie fame. He wrote the script and performed the show himself.

Sadly, Burr Tillstrom passed away before the show could be filmed. His puppets, The Kuklapolitan Players, are housed at the Chicago History Museum. In accordance with the puppeteer's wishes, his puppets cannot be copied, however, Anne has created her own unique puppets to play the characters in the show, and the Burr Tillstrom Foundation has granted her permission to perform with the original recording of The Dragon Who Lived Downstairs.

The Young Artist's Studio is a series of art workshops sponsored by The Urbana Free Library and The Urbana Arts & Culture Program designed to offer youth an opportunity to explore the arts. All events in the series are free and open to the public.
