Puppeteer group looks at “The Bigger Picture” submitted | inSide Drumheller

Drumheller’s Fellowship Baptist Church is expressing themselves in a unique way this summer through PuppetUp. On Canada Day, they performed their show, “The Bigger Picture”, which uses puppetry and drama to look at the world through a larger lens. “It was interesting that the puppeteers

wanted to explore this theme and present it in their own creative fashion,” said Wendy Fletcher, director of PuppetUp. The group was originally going to debut their show on June 23, but when the town was threatened by floods, the members chose to postpone and help others. “A choice had to be made; do we still have the show as scheduled or do we help oth-

ers with flood relief? It was truly a choice of us or others. The puppeteers were quick to choose the bigger picture…others. Most of PuppetUp volunteered throughout the weekend in different capacities all with the view of helping the community. Many of the puppeteers commented that our assistance in the community was the real show. It was very moving for me,” said Fletcher. During their Canada

Day show, PuppetUp began with a float in the parade and then ended the day with a show, which helped fundraise for Compassion Canada and flood relief in Drumheller. PuppetUp is looking for volunteers between the ages of 12 and 18. Practices include intensive workshops for team and skill building. Those interested are asked to contact Fletcher at the Fellowship Baptist Church.
