Touring puppeteers Holly and Wisteria take America! I am a touring Puppeteer with Tears of Joy Theater in Portland, Oregon. My tour partner, Wisteria and I are touring a show called 'The Ugliest Duckling' throughout the western states (or wherever else they send us) for 2012/13 season. The story is based on the Hans Christian Anderson fable, but instead of a swan, our story is set in Australia about a platypus accidentally born to a family of ducks who has to discover his identity. The show plays to elementary schools, local community theaters and cultural centers. We look forward to meeting you!
