Interview with Drew on the Port City Puppet Fest Blog!

Have you heard? The Southeast Regional Puppet Festival is in Wilmington, NC this summer, and it's going to be a blast! It's the Port City Puppet Fest, and it's happening July 15-18 on the campus of UNC Wilmington!

Our own Drew Allison is one of the artistic directors for the festival. Gina Gambony, festival director, recently did an interview with Drew on the festival blog. Have you ever wondered how Drew got started in puppetry? What was his first job out of college? (Hint: it wasn't as a puppeteer.) His favorite places to eat in Wilmington? Then head on over to the festival blog to check out Gina's interview.

And don't forget to send in your festival registration! We'll see you there!

Aw, Shucks!

We've gotten some awfully nice letters from our clients this week. We don't like to toot our own horn, but we wanted to share some of the kind words that we received.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the people at Grey Seal for applying their creative abilities in bringing my life's work to a realistic completion.

My sincerest thanks,
Lenny Friedman

I would like to thank you for your performances at Pines Elementary School and Creswell Elementary School. Our students and staff are still raving about your performance and the dialogue that it created when they returned to class about the importance of virtues. Some of the teachers have taken advantage of the lesson plans from your website and they have had great success in the classroom with these resources.

Your show, "A Show of Virtues" was truly inspirational. Although our students may not have been familiar with the words perseverance or tolerance, they understood the message through your puppetry.
