JLC Puppet Theater Makes Headlines!

The latest issue of "The Crier," the Junior League of Charlotte's quarterly magazine, features a cover story on the JLC Puppet Theater. Grey Seal's Drew Allison worked in close collaboration with the Junior League of Charlotte to develop a puppet show based around the Junior League's Healthy Child Initiative. The show is called, "You Are What You Eat!" and features a game show where contestants answer questions about healthy food choices.

The JLC Puppet Theater's schedule is already full, with appearances planned at preschools and elementary schools throughout the Charlotte area, as well as appearances at Levine Children's Hospital.

Drew Allison demonstrates puppet performance to members of JLC Puppet Theater.
