Every situation in life has a positive and a negative and it's okay to feel both. Sometimes it's hard to see the positive but that's where Creatureville's Pozzies come in. Be Pozzy is a one woman, several puppets, high energy show! This comical 40 minute interactive show is followed by a 20 minute hands-on workshop which teaches students that failing can lead to something good. This unique show and workshop combination allows for all ages to be engaged and learn about the art of puppetry.
An audience of 400 JK to Grade 7 students were mesmerized for 60 minutes because Rock the Arts Puppets was so polished and professional. Laura Wallis, Grade 6 Teacher
I would highly recommend Rock the Arts Puppets to other principals looking for a quality performance and learning experience for their entire school. C. Anderson, RC Garnett Elementary, Langley
A hands-on show and experience with amazing audience control. Now some of my students want to be puppeteers, what more could you ask for? Maureen Maxwell, Grade 2 Teacher
