“Mii Other Woman”, Michelle Warkentin’s one-woman puppet musical, gives voice to the invisible aspects of dementia through the power of puppets. Taking from this experience you will be given an outline to support the puppet play process from concept to production, to testing ground to collaboration. Participants who are interested in creating a puppet show will leave with the tools to bring to life their own socially conscious play.

Michelle has been a professional puppeteer for many years writing and producing puppet musicals for children and adults. She is the Artistic Director of Life Stages Theatre.
