TEACHING ARTIST: Liz Joyce

Liz Joyce was trained as a fine artist and teacher before she happened upon puppetry. She worked with master puppeteers, honed her carving skills working with traditional puppet carvers in Prague and often collaborates with other puppeteers. Liz's puppet operetta, Sing a Song of Sixpence was awarded an UNIMA Citation, the highest award in American puppetry. As creative director, Liz has hosted many talented puppeteers at Goat on a Boat Puppet Theatre in Sag Harbor, NY.
