Kids, adults invited to puppet show Gary Weldon, a ventriloquist, from Pisgah, IA, will bring his free kids' show to Prentis Park in Vermillion on June 22 at 10 a.m.
All kids are invited to this fun show. The show will include some magic, ventriloquism and the stars of the show, the DEW IT � SAYNO Puppets. In addition, some "local stars" will be on stage.
This will be a fun time for all attending. All ages are welcome. There is no admission charge as the show has been underwritten by several local firms/organizations. These sponsors felt that it was important for the kids to see this show.
In addition to being entertaining, the puppets also have a serious side to their part of the show. The kids will be taught how to deal with a friend who tries to get them in trouble. Parents are especially welcome, as Weldon feels it is very important for the parents to reinforce what the puppets teach the children.
Weldon has been an entertainer for many years. A few years ago he started specializing in kid shows. He travels throughout the Midwest presenting these shows.
