In support of the Creston Arts Summer Art Camps, Crest Area Theatre is sponsoring a residency by the Eulenspiegel Puppet Theatre.  Puppetry is an imaginative melding of creative visual arts and theatre found in cultures all over the world going back millenia.  This is the 50th anniversary year of the Eulenspiegel Puppet Theatre, a non-profit organization based in West Liberty, Iowa, dedicated to promoting the art of puppetry through high quality performances, workshops, and creative events.  The company is committed to educating the public about the arts, serving as a center for the exchange of ideas, and enhancing the quality of community life. 

Eulenspiegel Puppet Theatre will provide morning and afternoon workshops from June 24th through 28th. The morning workshop will be based at The Creston Arts Center for 20 students in grades 2nd through 5th, creating and exploring the use of different forms of puppets. The afternoon workshop will be based at the SWCC-PAC Auditorium, for 12 students in grades 6th through 12th.  Participants will explore rod-puppet making, as well as rehearse and produce the puppet show "Remembering Buxton".  Students in the afternoon workshop must also be available for the July 28th Friday evening performance.


Enrollment will be first-come first-serve at the Creston Arts website.  To find out more about Eulenspiegel, the workshops, and the show "Remembering Buxton", go to
