Family Day: Donkey Hodie cast appearance with puppet demo & workshop

Saturday, Jul 20th, 2024
6:00 PM–9:00 PM
Included with museum admission

Donkey Hodie and her friends, Purple Panda and Bob Dog, visit the museum to present a behind-the-scenes puppet demonstration. Following a 1:00pm live-action puppet demonstration will be a 2:00pm meet-and-greet for families and hands-on activities to guide them to make their own unique puppets. This imaginative process will be explored through character creation, sketching a puppet's likeness, and bringing it to life with mixed media supplies.

Donkey Hodie is produced by Fred Rogers Productions and Spiffy Pictures. The series is created by Adam Rudman and David Rudman of Spiffy Pictures and developed by Ellen Doherty, chief creative officer of Fred Rogers Productions. Executive producers are Doherty, Adam Rudman, and David Rudman.

Designing Donkey Hodie: From Make-Believe to Someplace Else is sponsored by DuPage Foundation and Explore Elmhurst with additional support from Lakeside Bank.
