I spoke with Cheryl from Findlay Market yesterday. She is very excited about me performing there. On Thursday Lara and I bought red fabric for the outside of the stage, and a neat blue lycra for the "nose cone" section. Now I must find piano wire, 2 aluminum supports, and a few more nylon bolts to built the Wump Mucket Rocket Stage. I think a 6+ foot red rocket will look really cool as a puppet stage.
Last night I sang The Carpenter's song "Close To You" using the Cyril puppet to Eleanor, she seemed to really like it. It may have been that she just knows the tune. :)
