Blacklight Puppetry is an exciting opportunity to experiment with unique blacklight puppets, such as Stretch-a-Bellies,Toobies and Doodle-Oos, while also learning the fundamentals of blacklight production, equipment and supplies. Q & A and many opportunities for “hands-on” play included!

Gabriel Anthony has been enthusiastically involved in puppetry for over 15 years, not including his younger years when he staged puppet shows from his bunk bed. 

He is the director of “Create, Minister, Teach!” – a creative ministry team in Daly City. They enjoy blending powerful stories with diverse art forms to present musical programs throughout the Bay Area. He has taught at regional, national and international conferences. He has also traveled to Mexico, Panama, Nicaragua and Ecuador for mission trips to equip locals with puppetry and creative techniques for working with their communities.


Let Your Inner Character Voices Out! – Brenda Besdansky

This is a short intro to vocal techniques for puppet voices. In this 15 minute introductory segment she’ll use fun games and techniques developed by her master coaches, Daws Butler (Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound) and Lucille Bliss (Crusader Rabbit, Smurfette) with whom she had the great fortune to study with at the beginning of her performing career.

For over 25 years Brenda Besdansky, founder of Speakers World, a  nationally recognized communications training and coaching company, personally offered business theater and voice coaching to entertainers, business executives, entrepreneurs and professional speakers. Now in her third act as Master of Canine Capers for Performing Pooch Productions, Brenda will instruct you on how to greatly enhance the quality of your puppet character voices.
