Starting early October I will be back on tour with:
Jim Henson's "Dinosaur Train Live! - Buddy's Big Adventure"
I'll be playing the role of the Conductor - a full size Troodon (rapter-like) dinosaur puppet that sings & dances, knows everything about the Mesozoic Era, and keeps everything going on the Dinosaur Train. And let me tell you, I've never been more excited for a job.
Based on the PBS kids tv show, this brand new production is a creation of the Jim Henson Company, and I get to be a puppeteer!!! All the Puppets are being designed and created by the actual Henson Creature shop, and that's just the beginning. The show is being co-designed and directed by John Tartaglia! Yes, that John Tartaglia - star of Avenue Q, Shrek on broadway, and creator of ImaginOcean. The show is being built from scratch using all sorts of amazing puppetry techniques, special effects, and of course a real Dinosaur train. And just wait, there's more!!!
We will be playing So many places where family/friends can come see this amazing production like Buffalo, Atlanta, Philly, Boston, the Count Basie theatre in NJ and...I can't believe this...New York City!!!!!!!!!!! More info on the show can be found at their official website: www.dinosaurtrainlive.com Check back for the most up to date schedule and news on the touring company.
I'm so excited everyone. The little boy in me obsessed with the Fraggles who watched "The Dark Crystal" on endless repeat is floored by such a dream coming true. After the year I had I can't imagine a better way of starting over than the opportunity to work for such amazing people.
Wish me Luck! I can't wait to see you on the road :)
