Bridget Palmer

Help your students develop a love for history as they explore the emotions sparked and actions taken by individuals in a historical period of your choice. With its play of darkness, color, and light, shadow puppetry provides a stimulating medium for the students’ self-expression, imagination, empathy, and creativity.  In this residency, students choose a historical event to dramatize and collaborate in small groups through critical thinking, improvisation, and art making to create puppets, scenery, and a script which to present. Led by Santa Rosa Children’s Theater Director, Bridget Palmer, this multi-sensory residency will undoubtedly leave a lasting impression.
