With the holidays just around the corner, ExYo welcomed local puppeteer and costume designer Astin Jay Stratoti into the studio for a full day of arts immersion with the kids. Astin’s work combines childhood whimsy with fantasy to transport her audiences to new worlds. In addition to brainstorming costume designs with the artists, Astin delighted the kids with her original puppet characters, including our new friend Bennet the Wizard! Youth are very excited to collaborate with Astin in the new year as we build towards our 25th Anniversary performance at the Boch Center-Wang Theatre on May 23rd, 2019. Mark your calendars! Don’t miss it!
