If you’ve had puppeteering or performing experience, then this is the program for you.
As a part of their 2015 Diversity Puppeteer Training Initiative, The Jim Henson Company will be auditioning talents and puppeteers to participate in their eight-week workshop next month and be a part of their troupe. Participants should have prior experience in puppeteering and comedy (a strong background in improv is encouraged), and be between the heights of 5’6″ and 6’3″.
This is a rare opportunity, as The Jim Henson Company rarely hosts open calls of this caliber to seek outside talents. The Company’s top puppeteers have participated in some of the most high-profile works of the past few decades, many of whom have worked alongside Jim Henson himself.
All qualified applicants should email their headshot and resume (and reel, if applicable) to puppeteer@Henson.com by Friday, May 29th.
