Sock-A-Con: Sock Puppet Workshop

Sunday, August 4, 2013, 1:30pm - 3:00pm
The Crawford Family Forum 474 S. Raymond Ave. Pasadena, CA 91105 Map and directions
Sock Puppet Sitcom Theater

The forum met a goofy group of new friends when the Sock Puppet Sitcom Theater invaded!  The puppets and their handlers hosted a 90 minute workshop where families created sock puppets, learned simple sock puppet choreography and performed in a "Gangnam Style" music video with  sock puppet Psy!

All of the audience members, and their new sock puppet creations, were invited to participate in Sock Puppet Cinderella presented at Grand Performances on August 11, 2013. 
The workshop was hosted in cooperation with Grand Performances and First 5 LA.



Based in Hollywood, Sock Puppet Sitcom Theater is owned and operated by Glamor Puss and Frenchie, two lauded sock puppets dedicated to the preservation of sitcoms through the ancient art of sock puppetry. LA Weekly awarded the company Best Performing Footwear in the 2012 “Best of LA.” @socksnetwork
