Family puppet workshop coming to Hayner

Irene Sheldon Imboden

TROY — Are you looking for a fun and free family activity? On Saturday, April 2, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. the Troy-Hayner Cultural Center, 301 W. Main St., Troy, will host Family Fun Puppet Fair. All the materials and instruction needed for your family to create and perform your own short puppet play will be provided in this free one-day family workshop. Pre-registration by phone at (937) 339-0457 or in person at the Hayner Center is required.

Irene Sheldon Imboden is the instructor for the Family Fun Puppet Fair. Imboden, who holds a bachelor of science degree in theatre education and an master of arts in Theatre, has been teaching at Troy High School for 23 years. The morning’s activities begin at 9 a.m. with instruction on creating and performing a puppet play. Each family will then write their play and make their puppets. The Hayner Center will provide drinks for lunch; however, each family is responsible for bringing their own sack lunch. In the afternoon, Troy-Hayner Cultural Center’s ballroom will be transformed into a puppet theatre so groups can share their productions. A cast party celebrating the day’s creative accomplishments will complete this theatrical experience. Participants will take home their play, puppets, and lasting memories.

Please call Leona at (937) 339-0457 or see for further information. Registration must be completed by March 11 to reserve your place in this free one-day workshop.

For more information, visit or call (937) 339-0457.
