January 24th, 2015, I performed in and designed puppets for Julie Brown’s Homecoming Queen’s Got a Musical at the Brava Theater in San Francisco for its third run.
Something’s not right at Betty Ford High, people are starting to drop dead, but no one has time for that, because there’s a new a Homecoming Queen to crown! Like for sure! Join Julie Brown, as Julie Brown and her best friend Debbie Dickey (Drew Droege) as they count down the minutes and the student bodies, until Homecoming!
There were two performances as part of the 14th annual Sketchfest, a comedy festival in San Francisco that ran from January 22nd – February 8, 2015.
Founded in 2001, SF Sketchfest is a nationally recognized comedy festival that showcases a mix of national headliners, local favorites and the best up-and-coming groups from throughout North America for a month of sketch, improv, stand-up and alternative comedy.
I designed a humanette puppet used by Drew Droege for the infamous homecoming scene.
Sometimes called a “living doll”, a puppet manipulated in front of the puppeteer, with the puppeteer’s head, and sometimes hands, appearing as that of the puppet.
Typically, the puppet body is much smaller than the human head. The puppeteer manipulates the hands and/or body to bring the character to life.World Encyclopedia of Puppetry Arts
Homecoming Queen’s Got a Musical was written by Julie Brown and director, Kurt Koehler.
