Company H was our in-house teen puppet troupe for 6 years. This is a compilation video of rehearsals, performances, and meet and greets with the audience.

You'll see some babies and toddlers that you might remember. And lots of Ms. Woodman from HES! She was a Library volunteer and Company H founder.

This was the video portion of an application to the Marshall Cavendish Excellence In Library Programming Award. We did not win. ; )
But the real prize is this video.
