WHO: This workshop is designed for adults (ages 18+) with a creative entertainment business or who would like a creative entertainment business, such as puppeteers, children’s party planners, children’s performers, musicians, kids’ bands, or magicians.

Art Grueneberger, Puppet Art Theater Co.:

For over twenty-six years Art Grueneberger has been solely reliant on puppetry for his living. His company was doing over 600 performances a year touring non-stop up and down the Golden State and beyond, pre-pandemic. In March of 2020 Art was forced to pivot to online shows, and, despite his resistance to the format, had two of the most profitable years of his career. Post-pandemic, the company has seen a return of their in-person bookings and has had their client base expand with continuing online performances.  Art appreciates the combination of luck, determination and mindset that has aided in his company’s financial and creative success and he thoroughly enjoys helping others find success of their own.

One purchase is required for each person in attendance.
