Who's this guy and why is he surrounded by puppets? Come to ART-i Gras on Feb 9 to find out! Puppet Showplace Theater, thanks for sharing Brad with us! www.tinyurl.com/chamberartigras

Here's a teaser: Brad Shur grew up making art out of any materials he could find. In puppetry, Brad discovered a medium that let him share his passion for all forms of creativity: sculpting, writing, performing, and more. Brad began performing in puppet shows while he was a student at the Rhode Island School of Design. He then hit the road, touring nationally with several puppet companies before beginning to create his own full length shows. As a puppet builder, Brad has created characters for American Idol, Dolly Parton, and a number of theater companies and independent performers. As a teaching artist, Brad has led workshops at the Center for Puppetry Arts, the National Puppetry Conference, the Puppeteers of America National Puppetry Festival, and at camps, schools, and colleges across New England. Since 2009, Brad has been the Resident Artist at Puppet Showplace Theater where he has created four original shows: "Dr. Doohickey's Monster Machine," "The Magic Soup and Other Stories,""Tall Tales" and "Robin Hood." He also trained extensively with master puppeteer and Puppet Showplace Resident Artist Emeritus, Paul Vincent Davis. Brad's newest creation, "Cardboard Explosion!" brings together puppetry, design, and creative improvisation to energize audiences to become art makers themselves. Brad hopes that families and school groups will leave the theater ready to transform their old cardboard boxes into something magical.
