I found this amazing video of a tour of the Puppet Arts Institute located in Independent Missouri. Diane Houk (the tour guide) takes us on an amazing historical journey and is a delight to listen too. Her love for puppetry can be felt from the get go; she is an amazing historian. I love this tour and have added it to my life’s “something I HAVE to do” list!
