Angela Beasley’s Puppet People
You’ve never seen anything like Angela Beasley’s Puppet People, a local puppet troupe presenting lively, zany performances for all ages. Beasley wants to change the way people think about puppets. “Puppets aren’t just an art form for children,” she said. “Adults can enjoy puppetry as well.” After all, puppets can get away with things humans only dream of!

Black Beards Pirate Ship
