My last gig of the summer was an excursion to Almonte to perform my Good Old Fashioned Punch & Judy Show at a really cool (but actually hot & sunny) new event called Paddles & Puppets, raising money for the Almonte Hospital.
The highlight of this excursion? A private tour of Noreen Young's retrospective museum exhibit, with tour guide Noreen Young herself. I grew up watching Noreen's art on TV, from Hey Diddle Day to Today's Special to Under the Umbrella Tree. She's actually one of my early heroes, and so the honour was truly mine to come to Almonte, perform at her new event, and revisit her incredible body of work.
The other highlight? That ice cold beer on the patio of the Barley Mow, of course!
Actor and Puppeteer. That's me! Here's where you'll find all my news!
