From Connor Hopkin via Austin Puppet Society, who comments:
"Hello brothers and sisters. I am co-instructing the two puppetry camps listed below. Reasons to pass this info along to anyone you know who is looking for activities for their kids this summer: #1. They're fun. #2 Nitra Guiterrez, the other instructor is brilliant with kids and theater."
